The similarity between these novels, however, stops here. Though Shelley learned much from her mother on how to frame a novel and what to assert, she was well aware that an author needs to say in a tacit way what lays him/her vulnerable to public censure. Shelley didn't repeat her mother's mistake of speaking too frankly of such a highly reprehensible act of the deconstruction of family, hiding the very kernel of the subject in the frame of fantasy and equivocating the final message in the juxtaposition of relative and conflicting points of view. When Frankenstein tears the body of the would-be mother of a new species into pieces, it is Shelley herself that denies the body of the mother. With the mother dead and buried at sea, Shelley was born again as a superior author.
