AN TJNCAMT STORY.
ORIGIN OF THE "SOULLESS MONSTER
The tnterestlnK History of an Old
Time Novel That Is Often Alluded
to In Literature and at Times Quot
Everybody, or nearly everybody, has
heard of the novel of "Frankenstein,"
though It is not probable that many
persons read It nowadays. There are
so many allusions to it in our litera
ture, "however, that one absorbs some
sort of a notion of it so that he can
not help knowing that it is a weird and
ghastly story about a monster, but
whether or not Frankenstein Is the
monster even well informed people do
not always know, showing that they
never read the story.
Sometimes we hear allusions to
''Frankenstein's monster," as In one of
Charles Sumner's orations, where he
speaks of the "soulless monster of
Frankenstein, the wretched creation
of mortal science without God." and
sometimes the reference is to Frank
eusteln only, as if he were the mon
ster." Of course Sumner, who was
very particular in his use of figures of
speech, was right. When Mrs. Delanrt,
In her fine novel of "Sidney," makes
Major Lee pay that "Christianity is a
Frankenstein," she suffers the major
to talk nonsense.
The story of this weird novel and the
circumstances under which it came to
be written are decidedly interesting
and may be told In a few words. The
facts are as follows:
In 181C Mary Godwin, afterward
Mrs. Shelley, eloped with Shelley, and
they took i:p their residence near Ge
neva, In Switzerland. They had Lord
Byron for n neighbor, and the three
passed much time together. Their con
versation frequently ran on the occult
and the mysterious, and Byron one day
proposed that each should write a
ghost story. All agreed aud went to
work, but it was not loug before the
two poets gave It tip as a hopeless
task. They could write poetry, hut
they could not write stories.
Mary persevered and completed her
tale in (he spring of 1S17. When .By
ron and Phelley heard it lead, the.v
wer surprised and delighted. II wa
bound to be the novel of the century!
The name of it tas "Frankenstein; or.
The Modern 1'iometheiis." It was im
mediately sent to London tor publica
tion and met with a great success.
Frankenstein is a Swiss youib, a
student at the Unhersity of Iiisol
stadt, deeply interested in the study of
chemistry and natural philosophy. He
resoUes to penetrate the mysteries of
life and death and wrest from nature
the secret of creation. After prolong
ed study he succeeds and discovers
how to impart movement and anima
tion to llfeless'uiatter.
He then tesolves to mold a colossal
man, making him beautiful In form
and feature aud Imbue him with life.
He carries on Ills woik lu a studio far
from the habitations of man, labors
long and secretly, and at last the work
Is completed. There lu the gieat room
lies the form and semblance of a hu
man being, perfect In all his propor
tions, rraukeustein relates the story:
"It was on a dready night in Novem
ber that I beheld the accomplishment
of my toils. With an anxiety that al
most amounted to agony I collected
the Instruments of life around me that
I might infuse a spark of being into
the lifeless thing that lay at my feet.
"It was already 1 o'clock in the
morning, flie rain pattered dismally
agniust the wiudow pnne, and my
candle was nearly burned out, when,
by the glimmer of the half extinguish
ed liglft, I saw the dull yellow eye of
the creature open. It breathed hard,
and a convulsive motion agitated Its
Slowly the immense creature arose,
and the artist, frightened at his own
work, fled awny. Then he returns to
find his creation possessed of life and
every attribute of humanity except a
soul. Nowhere can Jt find human sym
pathy. It is out of harmony with all
things about It, and after searching
the world in pursuit of happiness it
returns again to Frankenstein and de
mands that he make a companion with
whom it ean live iu sympathy and
rrnnken&ieln declines, and thence
forth the monster pursues hlin with
hatred and revenge. It blays his broth
era and sister. Ills friend and his bride.
It follows him to Russia, to Siberia
and into the Arctic ocean, and there
creature aud artist perish together. It
is. a most uncanny story to read o'
Sir Walter Scott reviewed the novel
iu The Quarterly, but while admitting
its power confessed he did not like it
"Our tasfe and our judgment revolt at
thi kind of writing." All the critics
agreed as to its daring originality.
