Celebrate the Halloween season with one of the greatest horror novels of all time. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein not only fined the horror genre, but has influenced every psychological thriller and science fiction novel for two hundred years. Over two class meetings, we’ll discuss the novel’s treatment of the power of language, nature vs. nurture, the science of fear, and the fear of science. We’ll also talk about how Frankenstein (and Frankenstein’s monster) has permeated popular culture, from Boris Karloff to Mel Brooks, and everything in between. The novel itself changed over time, and we’ll discuss some of the differences between the 1818 and 1831 editions. Two sessions: Wednesday, October 30, and Thursday, October 31, 2:30-4:30 p.m.
