Mary Shelley’s "Frankenstein" was a revolutionary text that pioneered the sci-fi genre. On the surface, it’s a novel about a scary monster, but Shelley’s sympathetic description of a soulful creature invites the reader to rethink the word “monster.” Watch this episode to learn about the original novel, why it was created, and how popular culture continues to perpetuate the story hundreds of years later. Part of the "Monstrum" series.
