Frankenstein

Through letters sent by Robert Walton to his wife, a wandering figure emerges named Victor Frankenstein. Frail and nearing his death, Victor recounts a fantastical story of how he assembled old body parts to create a human-like being, a creature so utterly monstrous and hideous that he regretted being its creator.

Frankenstein’s rejection of his creation turns the ‘creature’ into a true monster, resulting in murder and havoc and a treacherous voyage to find and kill it once and for all.

Frankensteinis a true classic of modern literature and is often considered to be a pioneering work of science fiction. Through Mary Shelley’s extraordinary tale, we see the true reflection of the human condition, which demands wonder, fear and empathy.
