Theme 1: Frankenstein

Frankenstein

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

Question #1: Have you ever called anyone a “monster?”
Question #2: Was he or she actually made from spare body parts and reanimated dead tissue?
There, in gangrenous limb, lies the secret to Mary Shelley’s monster. In Frankenstein, the monster is not so much a MONSTER! as it is a metaphor — a symbol for the beast within us all.
