Summary
When Victor Frankenstein meets Percy Bysshe Shelley at Oxford, the budding scientist and the radical atheist poet become fast friends, united by their interest in the origins of life. With Percy's encouragement, Victor begins his research into electricity -- which in turn leads to the creation of his legendary monster. This inventive reinterpretation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, written in the language of the early 19th century, incorporates both historical figures (such as Mary Shelley and Lord Byron) and fictional characters. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
