Another Gothic allegory published in 1818 by Mary Shelley as Frankenstein or Modern Prometheus. Written as a warning against over reaching man and the Industrial Revolution.



Mary Shelley derived the name 'Frankenstein' from a dream-vision. In German the name Frankenstein means 'stone of the Franks'



The theme is simple: The creator rebels against the creator. A clear message that irresponsible uses of technologies can have grave consequences.
