Frankenstein's monster discovered three books that shaped his understanding of the world, including the Sorrows of Young Werther. Werther's unrequited love for a woman eventually leads him to commit suicide. Frankenstein's monster wants to experience love as well, but Mary Shelley has her own critique of this idea of love.
The northern German states now looked to Prussia for leadership, but that power brought increased attention from their enemies. Bismarck engineered a war with France by striking at Napoleon III's pride and wound up winning a runaway victory to secure Prussia's diplomatic power.
