The origins of Frankenstein:
Written by 18-year-old Mary Shelley in 1816, the story of Frankenstein is the marriage of science and technology gone wrong. Conceived in a dream, Shelley tells the story of a creature who is created by a scientist obsessed with creating life. The outcome? An eight-foot-tall monster who can think and feel, yet is rejected from society because of his outward appearance — Frankenstein’s monster. One of the first science fiction novels, “Frankenstein” delves into the evils of human efforts to mimic the secrets of nature. The novel exposes modern societal fears of pairing science with technology. Published in 1818 with the title “The Modern Prometheus,” “Frankenstein” is reproduced worldwide in plays, films, comics and now on your kitchen table.
