Frankenstein, Nathaniel Whittock and Thomas Charles Wageman, 1823 (Wikimedia Commons). This image shows the monster, proud and wild, as Victor (not pictured) cowers below him. A historic depiction as well, this piece of art ultimately shows the power of the Monster as well as the ultimate power and potency of the entire novel. We should not underestimate the gravity of the Monster’s plight, nor should we underestimate Mary Shelley’s power in offering commentary on not just scientific revolutions, but also class and politics through such an unexpected lens as music.
