This exhibit is an exploration of both the novel's influence on modern society and the texts and works that influenced its creation and publication two hundred years ago.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the first printing of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's first novel, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. Shelley began writing the novel when she was eighteen years old, in 1816, after a visit to Lake Geneva with her lover and future husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron. Both men were highly influential figures in the Romantic literary movement in England, which itself was an inspiration to Mary Shelley and her writing. While at the lake, Shelley had a "waking dream" in which she imagined Victor Frankenstein bringing his monster to life. Two years later, her nightmare became a story that has fixated and entranced readers ever since.
