The legend of Frankenstein is one of the most gruesome stories ever imagined. This giant monster is made out of body parts stolen from the graveyard, sewn together by a mad scientist in a laboratory, and finally he is brought to life by electricity. Do not try this at home with your older brother just because he is a couch potato.


Brains, Bodies and Electricity

The story of Frankenstein was written in a time when scientists were making huge discoveries with electricity. It was over 200 years ago and a scientist by the name of Luigi Galvani had just discovered that it was our brains sending electric signals to tell our bodies what to do. Scientists everywhere started experimenting with electricity, brains and bodies... including some very gruesome practices. Soon after these creepy stories, the story of Frankenstein was written.


Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

In 1816, Mary Shelley was only 18 years old when she wrote the story of Frankenstein. Mary got her ideas from all the news about scientists stealing bodies from graveyards and working on bringing them back to life. She had many dreams of these stories and in these dreams the scientist actually brought the dead corpse back to life.

Then she told her dreams as stories to people, including her boyfriend Percy. Percy encouraged her to write her story onto paper and it was so good that they transformed it into one of the greatest novels ever written… Frankenstein!

It’s important to note that Frankenstein was actually the mad scientist and not the monster. It was only later when the monster was seen and used in many stories without the scientist that the monster became named “Frankenstein”.
