Frankenstein: or the Modern Pr by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley



The modern prometheus. AUTHOR OF THE LAST MAN, PERKIN WARBECK, &c. amp;c ween Lord Byron and Shelley, towhich I was a devout but nearly silent listener. During one of these,various philosophical doctrines were discussed, and among others thenature of the principle of life, and whether there was any probabilityof its ever being discovered and communicated. They talked of theexperiments of Dr. Darwin, (I speak not of what the Doctor really did,or said that he did, but, as more to my purpose, of what was then spokenof as having been done by him,) who preserved a piece of vermicelli in aglass case, till by some extraordinary means it began to move withvoluntary motion.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was an English novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

Frankenstein's in an overlooked classic, since most people think of the 30s movies or the style that they developed. The book is basically a Science fiction in the 18th century, and is a story that deserves to be told even today. Not like the Hollywood version. She causes you to sympathize with the monster while at the same time detesting and fearing him. the monster is a great metaphor of our creations coming back to haunt us Hollywood needs to make this version  .

Mary Wollstonecraft (Godwin) Shelley. Letter 1. To Mrs. Saville, England. I have often attributed my attachment to, my passionate enthusiasm for, the dangerous mysteries of ocean to that production of the most imaginative of modern poets. There is something at work in my soul which I do not understand. I am practically industrious - painstaking, a workman to execute with perseverance and labour - but besides this there is a love for the marvellous, a belief in the marvellous, intertwined in all my projects, which hurries me out of the common pathways of men, even to the wild sea and unvisited regions I am about to explore. But to return to dearer considerations

Percy Bysshe Shelley. Mary Shelley’s best-known book is Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818, revised 1831), a text that is part Gothic novel and part philosophical novel; it is also often considered an early example of science fiction. It narrates the dreadful consequences that arise after a scientist has artificially created a human being. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Frankenstein has far more in common with Dracula than with any of the novels of generic late-gothicism. Both are commonly cited as early examples of the horror genre, and both have introduced a character to popular culture that has become distorted beyond all recognition, mainly through their representations in the Hammer, and earlier Universal, movie franchises. Frankenstein, and Dracula also, seems now more akin to the ultra-modern strain of science-fiction technohorror than any classical version of the genre.
