16m 47s
This tutorial explores Victor’s newfound enthusiasm for the sciences and his decision to begin building ‘a new race’ of creatures, pushing beyond science to create something monstrous. We examine The Monster’s appearance & Victor’s reaction to it, including instant rejection, abhorrence and the introduction of Monster theory. Additionally we examine the psychological and physiological impact of this creation – falling deathly ill, fainting and the history of this in Gothic fiction
