In The Hidden Places

The moon gazed on my midnight labours, while, with unrelaxed and breathless eagerness, I pursued nature to her hiding-places.
~ from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Links:

* About Mary Shelley
* The text of Frankenstein on Gutenberg.org
* Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature, a neat site by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It includes lesson plans for middle and high school.
* A 3D papercraft Frankenstein on a wonderful blog called Frankensteinia.
* A site devoted to the Frankenstein films.
* Mary Shelley shirt
* A poem by Mary's husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley.
* An engraving of Mary and Percy.

Note: I know, and you know, and you might know that I know, that the "monster" isn't Frankenstein. The doctor who made the monster is Dr. Frankenstein. We know it, but still, nobody calls the monster anything but Frankenstein. Addendum: OK, so this guy does.

I've enjoyed Eric Joyner's art for years, but hadn't seen this one. What a treat... thank you. :-D
