Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ began life as a short story at a holiday villa overlooking Lake Geneva, on 17 June 1816. The story was developed into a full-length novel in Bath that same autumn, and published on New Year's Day 1818. This illustrated lecture will revisit the birth of Frankenstein, in the light of the latest research.
