Frankenstein’s monster is a fictional character that first appeared in Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. Mary Shelley’s book highlights the fear of science that gets out of control, because the scientist thinks only of the results of his research, with no concern for the consequences. Shelley demonstrates this fear in the book as science drives Victor Frankenstein to create his monster. In the end, it is also his use of science that inevitably leads to his demise. From the book “We are all equal”, by Finn Nygaard. Author Elsebeth Aasted Schanz, PhD, Manager and curator of the Danish Poster Museum.
