Frankenstein at 200

Next year will mark 200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The book, which explores man’s relationship to science gone wrong, is even more relevant in our brave new digital age.

As Jacob Brogan writes in Slate, “Though people still tend to weaponize it as a simple anti-scientific screed, Frankenstein, which was first published in 1818, is much richer when we read it as a complex dialogue about our relationship to innovation—both our desire for it and our fear of the changes it brings.”
