Felix De Lacey (Frankenstein) Felix is a character in Mary Shelley’s classic novel, “Frankenstein”, or, The Modern Prometheus, which was first published anonymously in 1818. Felix is the son of a good family which has fallen upon hard times, and now lives in a cottage near Victor Frankenstein’s estate. The monster stumbles upon Felix and his family and learns language and history by eavesdropping on their lessons for and conversations with their Turkish guest, Safie (with whom Felix is in love). As understanding and communication open new vistas to Frankenstein’s monster, so, too, does his observation of the relationship between Felix and Safie give him hope for the possibility of some measure of affection between him and his maker. Felix, however, dashes those hopes when the monster reveals himself, driving him away from their home and hearth, and illuminating the alienation that is part of the monster’s very creation. We can only say in Felix’s defense that he is but a representative of a society which, even when it is striving to be good and kind, cannot bear the concept of “otherness”.
