This book published in 2018 reflects the modern fascination with Frankenstein and the Gothic by exploring the 18th-century preoccupation with electricity and the reanimation of the dead. Making the Monster approaches the science behind the creation of Frankenstein’s monster by surveying the abstract and physical tools involved in the making of Victor Frankenstein’s creature.
