Abstract

This essay discusses the fates of the literary doubles in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus treating doubling as a process and exploring its mechanisms. In doing so it discovers that doubling is an inherently destructive process that will result in the death of the original self of everyone who cannot exit it before it runs its course.
