In Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein, the scientist Victor Frankenstein refuses to obey the wishes of his monstrous creation and make a female of the same species. If the two creatures were to procreate, he reflects, “a race of devils would be propagated upon the earth who might make the very existence of the species of man a condition precarious and full of terror.” In revenge, the monster hunts down Frankenstein and kills his bride on their wedding night, ensuring that Frankenstein’s only progeny remains the monster himself.
Princeton University hosted a reading of Mary Shelley’s Gothic novel Frankenstein, which is celebrating its bicentennial this year. Each night was dedicated to one volume of the novel. This event, presented by Princeton’s English Department and Humanities Council, belonged to the worldwide Frankenreads initiative organized by the Keats-Shelley Association of America.
