Revisiting a horror classic
and how to read Frankenstein
This season we’ve been getting into the autumnal mood with Gothic short stories, Victorian fiction, and an upcoming exploration of horror literature. Today, we’re rereleasing our episode on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a work that fits perfectly into our seasonal theme.
We hope listening or relistening to our discussion about this classroom staple will be enhanced by all the additional Gothic content in the Novel Pairings feed this fall.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was an amazing woman.
A fun graphic tee to celebrate your love of the monster (or cult classic film).
We love these Vintage Classics editions.
And if you just can’t get enough of Gothic literature, you can relisten to our episode on The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter and twisted Gothic fairytales to read in one sitting.
