Everything you need to know to read "Frankenstein" – Iseult Gillespie

View full lesson:

In 1815, Lord Byron proposed a challenge to a few literary guests he had gathered in his house on Lake Geneva: Who could write the most chilling ghost story? This question sparked an idea in eighteen-year-old Mary Shelley who, over the next few months, crafted the story of “Frankenstein.” Iseult Gillespie shares everything you need to know to read Mary Shelley’s classic novel.

Lesson by Iseult Gillespie, animation by Silvia Prietov.

  20. Reading "Frankenstein" breaks me, how miserable could one man become from his own past actions, it's haunting enough to think about the person you love the dearest, adore the most would be killed by your own creation leaves you nothing to hope for and yet he's willing to live to see the day of judgement. The sparks of light that shines through the sheer oblivion is bright enough to move forward and sometimes it's so hard to find, even just a little glimpse of it.

    Excellent video as always Ted-ed, Thank You.
