Bloom’s Modern Critical Interpretations

Page 132

Populations, “Humanities,” and Frankenstein 123

sympathy, fellow feeling, and fellow creatures seems to draw upon Wollstonecraft’s
critique of the ideology of sexual difference” (199).

32. Donna J. Haraway, Primate Visions: Gender, Race, and Nature in the World of Modern
Science (New York: Routledge, 1989). Haraway’s insistence that vision and perspective be
embodied and theorized as such, as well as her call for “situated knowledges,” has obvious
implications for my reading of Frankenstein. See especially the section, “The Persistence
of Vision,” in “Situated Knowledges: The Science Question in Feminism and the Privilege
of Partial Perspective,” Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature (New York:
Routledge, 1991).

33. Thomas Robert Malthus, An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798), ed. Philip
Appleman (New York: Norton, 1976), 128.

34. Malthus, 122.
35. Malthus, 29. Malthus introduces the “struggle for existence” in a review of the

“savage or hunter state.” We should read Malthus as much as Rousseau as a theorist of
primitive encounters.

36. Karl Marx, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, in The Marx-Engels Reader,
ed. Robert Tucker, 2nd ed. (New York: Norton, 1978), 75.

37. Malthus, 94.
