Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus

By Mary Shelley (10)

Considered one of the first science fiction books, Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus is a deservedly popular classic that explores the use of science to create life, and the consequences that come with defying nature’s order. In popular culture, Frankenstein has become synonymous with a terrifying monster, however in Shelley’s novel, Dr. Frankenstein is the scientist who endeavors to create a human-like creature. Readers begin with the perspective of Captain Robert Walton, who tells the story through letters to his sister. Walton encounters Frankenstein on a voyage, and Frankenstein proceeds to recount his life story, including his childhood, education, romance, the creation of ‘the monster’, and the devastating effects this has had on his life. Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus was the first novel of its kind, and will be most enjoyed by older adolescents, due to its fantastical conception of humans creating a human-like form. The real beauty of Shelly’s masterpiece though is its eloquent and vivid portrayal of numerous human qualities, such as love, ambition, vengeance, loneliness, and regret, relating how these inherently human emotions radically shape our decisions, and ultimately, our lives.
