Frankenstein is embedded in the public imagination. It carries challenging and often uncomfortable motifs — doubling, parenthood, feminism, loneliness, the righteous anger of the outcast, the equally transformative powers of love and hate, the natural world, the limitations of revenge, and the horror of science without conscience. And though the novel was written at the cusp of the Victorian age, it’s rarely spoken of as a literary artifact from 200 years ago; “Frankenstein” is as efficient and resonant a reference today as it was in 1818. It’s a story that, fittingly, feels alive.
