Frankenstein Or the Modern Prometheus
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Feb 16, 2016 - 174 pages
Many readers, familiar with the Hollywood movies of Frankenstein, and opening the book for the first time, may be surprised not to find themselves transported at once to a remote castle, complete with galvanic flashes and the inarticulate grunts of Boris Karloff. Instead, they are bound for the North Pole with an ardent explorer, Robert Walton. The theme of rejection by society of a man who then turns on society is of course a common one in twentieth century fiction. The appeal of the idea of a man's creating monstrous life is vouched for by the many books and movies on this theme.
