About this Product
“Thus strangely are our souls constructed, and by slight ligaments are we bound to prosperity and ruin.”
– Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
Frankenstein is a brilliant tale of the importance and place of man in the universe. What makes us truly human? What level of control can one really have over another? Can humanity be quantified and reprocessed? There were hardly any sort of horror stories written when Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus was published in the early 1800s. The book portrays the Monster as articulate and sentient, self-taught having learned to speak and read after being abandoned by Dr. Frankenstein. But like humans tend to be, he is caught up in the superficial, catching his likeness for the first time in the water and seeing himself for the grotesque being he is. Like humans have a tendency to do, he seeks retribution for his status as an outcast to the world. Despite his learned status, his primal instincts of grief and abandonment take over, and he wants to see the world suffer if he is denied the happiness he feels entitled to. Truly a remarkable story.
