how does da monster in frankenstein and bernard marx in brave new world show how their character's alienation reveals the surrounding society's assumptions and moral values?

it's been a while since i read either book, but basically--
If a character is alienated, then the society that the character inhabits has an extreme negative reaction to him. So you look at the reasons that the society rejects the character, and those reasons will be tied to the society's values.
To write a REALLY kick-@$$ essay here, don't just stop with the reasons stated explicitly in the book--find the reasons that the society itself (and maybe the author) doesn't even recognize.
