Frankenstein

Frankenstein

  

by Mary Shelley

M. Krempe

Character Analysis

Krempe is Victor's natural philosophy professor and the worst academic advisor ever. He mocks Victor's interest in alchemy and tells him to start all over again. Oh, and it doesn't help that he's "a little squat man with a gruff voice and a repulsive countenance" (3.12). With a teacher like that, can you blame Victor for wanting to study something else?
