The legacy of Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, one of the most famous of the English Gothic novels of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, lives on through the modern cultural icons of the mad scientist and the demonic creation that always seem to threaten to destroy humankind. Through Victor Frankenstein, Shelley addresses the triumph of scientific knowledge in eighteenth-century England over the superstitions and bigotry of religious vanity in the understanding of nature, a process that began a century earlier with the Age of the Enlightenment.
