Great Literature Discussion: “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley (Online)

January 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material to fashion a new being which he shocks into life by electricity. But his botched creature, rejected by his maker and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy all. This gothic tale is a devastating exploration of the limits of human creativity.


Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used.

Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.

For complete access information, including Meeting ID, please see this week’s Ethical Weekly email or contact Gunther.
