Abstract

For centuries man has found himself by the river of immense questioning, which runs down into the deep oceans. These questionings have caused discontent in him with the surroundings. Man feels so captivated by the surroundings where he lives that he desires to break free from the boundaries. In spite of the fact that there is a huge span of time in between the ancient and the modern man, the innate desires of man have never changed and led him to rebel against the authority. This is evident in some literary productions emerged in totally different cultures and in totally detached surroundings. For example, Frankenstein, which emerged in the Northwest of the Old World in the 19th century and the Epic of Creation of Turkish mythology in Altai-Yakut times surprisingly have many common aspects. The aim of this paper is to show the similarities between the two nations that are very different in culture and very much detached in space and time. The comparison between the two narratives is revealing in terms of explaining the true human nature.  Implicitly, there are seven steps we are going to handle. The concept of the big creator, examining challenge or revolt against the authority and desire of becoming a creator, analysing of take advantage of nature, creature's destinies, studying creature’s revolt against a created creator, and lastly the punishments of creators by the eternal God creator of all.
