Don’t Reanimate Corpses! Frankenstein Part 1: Crash Course Literature 205

In which John Green teaches you about Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein.

Sure, you know Frankenstein the cultural phenomenon, but how much do you know about the novel that started it all?

You’ll learn about the Romantic movement in English lit, of which Frankenstein is a GREAT example, and you’ll learn that Frankenstein might just be the first SciFi novel.

Once again, literature comes down to just what it means to be human.

John will review the plot, and take you through a couple of different critical readings of the novel, and will discuss the final disposition of Percy Shelley’s heart.

Note from Among the Fray: We will continue watching Crash Course’s Black American History series as episodes are released on a weekly basis.

An episode of Crash Course’s series on Literature – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news while we wait for a new Black American History video.
