Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is an 1818 novel written by Mary Shelley. The first edition was published anonymously in 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared in the second edition, which was published in Paris in 1821.
Frankenstein tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a sapient creature in an experiment. In the story we are told the story of a science lover, Victor Frankenstein, who begins to experiment with corpses until he is able to artificially give life to one of them, who escapes at that moment. After this, this creation narrates the rejection, the loneliness and the fear that he had to go through after being given life.
For this reason, in addition to being a novel full of mystery and darkness, this work is full of ethical and philosophical reflections on the beginning of life, the advances of science and technology in human lives and the consequences of our actions, since Víctor he is not responsible for his creation to such an extent that he does not give it a name, leaving it exposed to the vicissitudes of that new and unique life.

I know that while you are pleased with yourself, you will think of us with affection, and we shall hear regularly from you.
The fallen angel becomes a malignant devil. Yet even that enemy of God and man had friends and associates in his desolation; I am alone.
I suddenly left my home, and bending my steps towards the near Alpine valleys, sought in the magnificence, the eternity of such scenes, to forget myself and my ephemeral, because human, sorrows.
