Kevin Paul, a Sophomore at Cistercian Preparatory School, will be presenting his paper “The Inevitability of Solitude” at the 2017 Frankenstein Colloquium

Kevin Paul, Class of 2019
Kevin Paul is a sophomore at Cistercian Preparatory School and has attended Cistercian since the 5th grade. Kevin is a member of the Cistercian Academic Quiz Bowl and Math Clubs as well as an avid Soccer enthusiast and player. Kevin also spends much of his time volunteering at hospitals as well as through service organizations such as YMSL. Kevin became especially intrigued by Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein after reading it in his sophomore English class and is eager to be presenting in this year's Frankenstein Colloquium at The Oakridge School. His paper, "The Inevitability of Solitude," explores how Frankenstein's monster's suffering was affected by his interactions with others as well as the parallels between Shelley's novel and Arthur Schopenhauer's Hedgehog's Dilemma.

Kevin will be reading his paper “The Inevitability of Solitude” during the 3rd block in Session F, titled “A Society of Hedgehogs.”  The presentation will take place in the Choir Room on the 1st floor of the Fine Arts building.
