The Afterlife of Shelley and Frankenstein

The Afterlife of Shelley and Frankenstein | Frankenstein as part of the Gothic genre | Scoop.it

What makes a monster? What is it like living on the margins of society? Is technology inherently good or bad? These questions guided Mary Shelley 200 years ago as she wrote her classic novel Frankenstein — they remain just as relevant today. The second edition of Biblion explores the connections between Shelley’s time and our own, showing how the classics resonate throughout society and the breadth of NYPL’s offerings.

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

Interview with Dave Morris, Creator of Frankenstein App. | The Gothic Imagination | Frankenstein as part of the Gothic genre | 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.
