Abstract: In what follows, then, I would like to concentrate on Shelley's portrayal of the monster's education, which occupies at least one-third of the novel, to cast light on both the ways in which the monster develops-through language acquisition-from "a creature of fine sensations" to one of "evil passions" (120-21), and the ways in which his growth as such may very well show Shelley's aim to unveil education as, in Derrida's terms, a pharmakon, them'elange of both remedy and poison, pleasure and pain (99).
