Was ‘Frankenstein’ Really About Childbirth?

Was ‘Frankenstein’ Really About Childbirth? | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

The last notes that Wollstonecraft wrote to Godwin are included in the exhibition“Shelley’s Ghost: The Afterlife of a Poet,” which began last year at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and has now come to the New York Public Library. On display are numerous artifacts both personal and literary from the lives of the Shelleys, including manuscript pages from the notebook in which Mary wrote Frankenstein (with editing in the margins by her husband), which have never before been shown publicly in the United States. But it was Wollstonecraft’s scribbled note, in which she referred to her baby as “the animal”— the same word that the scientist in Frankenstein would use to describe his own notorious creation—that gave me pause.

Interview with Dave Morris, Creator of Frankenstein App. | The Gothic Imagination

Interview with Dave Morris, Creator of Frankenstein App. | The Gothic Imagination | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

The Frankenstein app is a reworking of Mary Shelley’s original novel in which, in the course of reading, the reader can engage with the characters by asking questions and offering advice. Such advice is not always taken, as the characters develop a relationship with the reader based on the choices made, and may or may not trust him or her. Ultimately the purpose is to allow the reader to navigate their own course through the text, exploring the various interpretations and possibilities inherent in Shelley’s work. Dale Townshend of the Division of English Studies and Padmini Ray Murray from the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication, University of Stirling, interviewed author Dave Morris about his work.
