Those wondering what Frederick von Steuben has to do with Mary
Shelley's Frankenstein, should take a look at von Steuben's attitude
toward the troops and see how it fits with Walton's description of the
attitude of his ship's master. There is also the matter of same sex
attraction and Mary Shelley's sympathy for those who are persecuted
for the affections that result. While conventional views regarded
attractions such as von Steuben's as monstrous, Mary Shelley did not.
She took an active interest in assisting Mary Dodds, as has been shown
Betty T. Bennett.
