Yes, indeed we can say that there is a Frankenstein element, or even the monter element as Janet said, in all of us.
We can even define the F element as the ambition in us, and the montrous element the unknown (ugly) desire.
For the Romantics, however, this is not completely true. Frankenstein, as a Romantic hero and overeacher, is what the Romantics both feared and admired, because he competes with God and violates natural rules.
Elizabeth on the other hand, holds a more balanced relationship with nature.
For me, I did have some friends in college life who were passionate, ambitious, but not realistic. They, unfortunately, squandered their talents.
