Frankenstein and the birth of science: [the era of ingenuity that electrified science and fiction]

Levy, Joel, author

Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' was conceived against the backdrop of rapid change in the scientific world. 'Frankenstein and The Birth of Science' offers an engrossing insight into the world of science in late-18th and early-19th-century Europe, through the prism of the seminal science fiction novel. Illustrated with line drawings, it reveals how the monster was conceived, suggests the real-life basis for Victor Frankenstein and describes in vivid detail the experiments that might have led to the Creature's birth
