« back to classes page
Over 200 years ago, a 20-year-old Mary Shelley anonymously published a story that revolutionized horror and science fiction, as well as introduced one of the western world's most iconic monsters: Frankenstein. This short study on Shelley's Frankenstein will explore themes of ambition, alienation, monstrosity, hubris, and more to reveal how this legendary tale and creature have withstood the test of time. Join us as we attempt to answer one of literature's most enigmatic questions: Who is the real monster? This class is for anyone interested, no prior reading or watching required. If interested in reading the novel, however, the 1818 text/edition is recommended, and is available in free versions online or wherever you acquire your books.
