Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is one of the most famous classic horror stories of all time. The novel was written by the English author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley about the young science student Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. Dr. Frankenstein discovers a previously unknown but elemental principle of life, and that insight allows him to develop a method to imbue vitality into inanimate matter. After a great deal of hesitation in exercising this power, the doctor spends two years painstakingly constructing the creature's body which he then brings to life using his unspecified process. Frankenstein is infused with elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement, and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. It has had a considerable influence in literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories, films, and plays.
