An 18″x24″ book poster containing the full text of Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Here, the monster opens its eyes for the first time, filled with the lifeless void.
Frankenstein tells the story of a hopeful scientist who uncovers a supernatural technique to bring inanimate creatures to life. Actually taking its title from the surname of its protagonist (and not the nameless “monster”), Frankenstein chronicles Victor Frankenstein’s struggle with his creation as his creature searches for meaning.
Hailed by some as the first real science fiction novel, Frankenstein’s monster has grown into a cultural symbol, representing the potential for both the incredible possibilities and terrible repercussions of scientific discovery.
