Were you directed to find this connection or did you make it up? The simplest connections are these: 1. They're both epistolary novels2. Werther, with its emotionally-centered action, and as an exponent of the Sturm und Drang movement, would have inspired Shelley and her comrades as Sturm und Drang writers had a big influence on what would become romanticism. Some even say that Werther is one of... more

You can read my summary of The Island of Dr. Moreau http://literature-classics.knoji.com/h-g-wells-the-island-of-dr-moreau-plot-and-character-summary/ but I do not cover the specific setting of the compound. From my memory of the book, it is a walled compound with an inner court and interior rooms that are off limits to the main character, Prendick. He is in a room that has a door that o... more

I'm not seeing time as a central theme in Macbeth, although there is that soliloquy about "tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow."  But that's more about the meaninglessness of life, and Macbeth's regret  that he spent his life pursuing ambitions that left him with only emptiness.  At another point he says, " And that which should accompany old age, As honor, love... more

The title of Mary Shelley's book is Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus. While I don't recall a specific comment that the author makes about science, the character of Victor Frankenstein wishes to use science to reanimate or bring back to life a human being. He wishes to overcome death. The quest of Victor Frankenstein raises questions of medical ethics and the overlap of science, morality, reli... more

Christopher Paolini is not an original writer and merely rehashes tried and true aspects, themes and quirks from other writers. For example, the dragons in "Eragon" are remarkably similar to the dragons in Anne McCaffery's Pern novels. The theme of a young boy trying to dispose a tyrant has been done to death. He self-published "Eragon" which should show you... more

Hi, Peggy.  Here's the closest I've found.  Sir William Brandon fought on the side of Henry Tudor at the battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and was killed by Richard the Third.  Names change a lot over time, so Brenton and Brandon could actually be the same name.  Hope this helps!  more

The daughter of the Milanese nobleman is Elizabeth, Victor's adopted sister to whom he is betrothed. Her character in the original version (1818) was Victor's cousin but when Mary Shelley revised the story (1823) she made the character of Elizabeth to be the daughter of a Milanese nobleman. This was to make the union of Victor and Elizabeth more acceptable to her readers. more

The first questions would be how old and how many.  If there are already plenty of copies in circulation, then of course, the value would be less, however, there are collectors of every sort, and you have what they are looking for, in most cases they are willing to pay.  As always, ebay is a fantastic place to test the waters, as just about anyone who is a serious collector will be hunti... more

In a non-fiction book, there should be no un-truths in it; hence the name.  Non-fiction is generally just a long telling of real things that happened in history. As for fiction, having real facts enhances the story, and thus the reader's experience.  It provides something the reader can relate to, which is highly important as it keeps a reader focused and interested in the work as a whol... more

I think it's because the colour of emerald is green, reminds you of nature, peace and trnaquility. There's alot of wisdom in nature because if you look closely everything has it's purpose and place. And also from nature we can forsee certain things that will affect us in the future. As naure changes so does life.
