Victor Frankenstein is a dedicated natural scientist, whose studies in chemistry, medicine and anatomy has lead to an obsession with the origin of life and the mystery of death. He wants to bring life to dead things, and he decides to assemble a creature from the body parts of deceased human beings.
But Frankensteins attempt to take the place of the Creator becomes fateful, and he flees the monster he has brought to life. The lonely, lost, and terrifying figure tries to approach the inhabitants of the surrounding villages, but is chased away, and ultimately decides to seek revenge.
Frankenstein [1818] is a variation on the myth of Prometheus, who stole fire from the ancient gods to give it to humanity. Through a critique of the scientific optimism of her time, and a profound understanding of humanity's fear of the unknown, Mary Shelley created one of the most iconic figures in world literature.

MARY SHELLEY [1797-1851] was the daughter of philosopher William Godwin and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, and had an education influenced by liberal ideas. In the summer of 1816, spent by Lake Geneva in Switzerland, her nightly conversations with poet Lord Byron and her husband, poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, sparked the idea for her most famous book, Frankenstein.

  1. Mary Shelleys Frankenstein
    Monica Hagerman, 26 juni 2024

    Intressant att läsa om vetenskapsmannen Viktor Frankensteins liv och inte bara om hans " kända Monster" . Mary Shelleys språk är, med tanke på att hon skrev boken redan 1831, mycket lättläst.
