Frankenstein IS…

I settled on a theme for my 31 Days of Halloween blogging project, and it will revolve around a classic monster and one hell of a novel.

I don’t know what kind of place Frankenstein has in modern horror movements (it does have a very important one) but at the dawn of horror cinema and Gothic literature, the man and the monster were there. The novel’s transcendent ideas have seeped into all kinds of fictions, possibly more than we can imagine.

I’m going to take a dive on this blog (not a terribly deep one), but I’ll start with some basic, 9th grade English class research – a Google of all kinds of thematic guides to help you write papers.

Frankenstein is…

Romanticism

Revenge

Hubris

Promethean/Luciferian Folly

Family

Alienation

Science Fiction

Stalk-y?

Womb Envy?

Occultism?
