Abstract

Famously written as a consequence of collaborative literary activities – the ghost story competition proposed by Byron at Lake Geneva, and conversations about science and natural history ‘to which’ Mary Shelley claimed she was ‘a devout but nearly silent listener’ (Frankenstein [1831] 297) – Frankenstein is a novel defined by participation. Born of the shared practices of a particular group, it has since been received into theatrical and cinematic communities, scientific and musical ones. Emerging from a creative collective and preoccupied with the theme of belonging, Frankenstein is a work that continues to bring people together, however fixated it might seem on lives torn apart.
