As Saturnalia gave way to what is called Candlemas in the Pagan calander, I decided to go see the newest rendition of Mary Shelly’s story Frankenstein (my first for 2014). The movie called ‘I, Frankenstein’, directed by Stuart Beattie, (who gave us Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl/Dead Man’s Chest and 30 Days of Night), wasn’t too disappointing in the ‘good against evil programming’ department’. If anything, it was a ‘visual feast’ that offered insight into those ‘unseen worlds’ recorded in numerous ancient texts. Its another giant one, so I’d get comfortable.
Frankenstein also known, as The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by British author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley about an eccentric scientist called Victor Frankenstein, who creates a ‘grotesque creature’ in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. According to sources Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818.
