Sammanfattning: The main focus of this essay is to attempt to answer the question of how Mary Shelley in her novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818), and Kenneth Branagh in his film Frankenstein (1994) portray nature, the environment and the characters with the help of an ecocritical perspective, and how Frankenstein could be used by high school teachers to teach students about the ecocritical perspective, but also the global sustainability goals. The questions that I have tried to answer in this analysis are: How is nature used in the two versions to reflect the main characters? How can the main characters in the two versions be interpreted from an ecocritical perspective? And how can these two versions of Frankenstein be used to inform students about the environment and sustainable development? The analysis has been conducted with the help of two ecocritical concepts, anthropomorphism and anthropocentrism, and with the help of these two concepts I have been able to draw the conclusion that the author and filmmaker present differences in nature and the environment depending on the situation, and I have also been able to present how a high school teacher could use Frankenstein to inform students about the ecocritical perspective and the global sustainability goals.
