Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, written in epistolary form, is about Dr. Victor Frankenstein, who seems discontent and achieves satisfaction by exploring the supernatural realm in a village near Gevena. The creation of his “monster” comes about because of his unchecked intellectual ambition. His experiment gets out of hand and his reaction to this man-made “monster’s” desire for companionship makes for a fantastic read. This thesis has been the basis for several films. The struggles between Dr. Frankenstein and the “monster” he created are fascinating.
