Frankenstein Program

Frankenstein! Myth, Monster, and Popular Culture

Saturday, October 28, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Coshocton County District Library - Large Meeting Room

Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein towers over Western literature as one of the most influential novels ever written and science's most enduring myth. Technologies of artificial intelligence, laboratory fertilization, cloning, and titanium body parts make Shelley's monster more relevant with each passing decade. Frankenstein also launched the horror and science fiction genres that have dominated popular culture for two centuries, developing into the monster-in-the-house tradition of Psycho and serial-killer movies.
