History of National Frankenstein Day
Shelley, Born on August 30, 1797, published Frankenstein at the young age of 22 in 1818. Recognized to be a predecessor of modern-day science fiction, Frankenstein describes the story of scientist Victor Frankenstein and his experiment that ends with the creation of a human-like creature. In the story, the creature who is hated and denied by everyone due to its appearance does not have a pseudonym. However, in popular culture, it is mistakenly referred to as Frankenstein after its author. Although everyone in the fiction considers him to be a monster, he is also an intelligent and sensitive being who is looking to be accepted by others. Hence Frankenstein Day is a perfect day to honor the author Mary Wollenstone Shelley for her Tale.
