Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Shelley, M. Chapter 1. Shelley, Mary. Lit2Go Edition. August 06, I am by birth a Genevese, and my family is one of the most distinguished of that republic. My ancestors had been for many years counsellors and syndics, and my father had filled several public situations with honour and reputation. He was respected by all who knew him for his integrity and indefatigable attention to public business. He passed his younger days perpetually occupied by the affairs of his country; a variety of circumstances had prevented his marrying early, nor was it until the decline of life that he became a husband and the father of a family.
It was written by the brilliant Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The story concerns Victor Frankenstein, a scientist who joins a university in order to study chemistry and philosophy. Victor decides to create a grotesque monster that soon becomes his great foe. He has not the slightest idea that this powerful creature will destroy not only his life but also the lives of the people he love the most. The story shows that by playing God you can destroy your own life and the lives of your beloved ones. Some readers will find Victor to be an excellent scientist, who transgresses boundaries without fear and manages to create something that nobody had created ever before. Other readers will say that he was a complete lunatic, incapable of dealing with the problems that he himself had caused.
It's a foolish dream I suppose. And if you can make it to the Tree of Life and still be with your partner, guess what. There is no question this is the true church. I thought about those deeply spiritual moments I had had in life and how special they were to me.
