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.
