Boris Karloff as 'the creature' (1931)

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This illustrated talk traces the book’s progress from ghost story to cultural icon. Along the way, we will consider the revised manuscript, the input of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, and the impact of the Romantic movement and the Gothic genre. The presentation will include excerpts from some of the 120 films that the book has inspired.

Dr Phillipson lectures regularly on Shakespeare, art history, literature, and film. He has published articles on poetry, detective fiction, and social history

[The Association’s AGM will follow this talk.]
