- FRANKENSTEIN : I OUGHT TO BE THY ADAM, BUT I AM RATHER THE FALLEN ANGEL
Details"I had desired it with an ardour but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart."Consumed by the desire to discover the secret of life, Victor Frankenstein, a man with unremitting curiosity and hunger for knowledge, infuses a spark of life into the inanimate body created from stolen body parts. But as the dull yellow eyes of the creature open, Victor is chilled to the marrow. Appalled by his work, he runs away. What happens as his creation, the monster, turns into a murderer, seeking out his creator, demanding companionship? Will Victor Frankenstein create another monster? An instant bestseller, Mary Shelleys Frankenstein explores how destructive the thirst for knowledge can be. With elements of a true Gothic novel, it is considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction.
