Theme 2: Frankenstein

Frankenstein

Mary Shelley, 1818
Famous for: Frankenstein’s monster, of course. And a mad chase toward the North Pole.

You’ve heard this before, right?  “I’ve created a monster!”  That little line traces its roots to Mary Shelley’s creation.  So does its meaning.  _Frankenstein_ is, at heart, an inquiry into the unintended consequences of unrestrained ambition.
