The Great American Read: Rethinking Frankenstein's Monster

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, a current selection in PBS The Great American Read, which shines a spotlight on America’s 100 favorite novels. A campaign has been going on for months, where people have been voting for their favorites from the list, with the winner to be revealed on the digital series’ grand finale on October 23, 2018.

For the occasion, PBS Digital Studios has released a short, educational video called “Rethinking Frankenstein’s Monster,” hosted by Dr. Emily Zarka for the digital show Monstrum. The video explores the famous monster, who, fans of the novel already know, is a much more complex being than people realize, as well as gives a short history of Mary Shelley and her inspiration for the novel.

Monster & Madman #2 is the latest installment of the three-issue mini-series by writer Steve Niles and illustrator Damien Worm. When a monster and a madman cross paths, will anyone truly be safe?

As the Monster finds himself in a city filled with people – and unsure of how he got there – he is faced with the fact that no matter how many living souls may be nearby, he’ll always be alone. When a doctor who goes by the name of John Moore finds him wandering about, he takes the Monster in, revealing that it was he who found him washed ashore. As the doctor’s curiosity regarding his guest’s physical state grows and unable to shake his own wariness about the doctor’s demeanor, the Monster becomes doubtful as to whether or not he should remain in the man’s care; however, when Doctor Moore offers the Monster a deal, his advances become a little difficult to refuse.
