Frankenstein’s Monster

Frankenstein’s monster, frequently and inaccurately referred to as Frankenstein, is a tragic villain from Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein. Frankenstein created his monster through a blend of chemistry and alchemy; creating an 8 foot tall, hideous creature that just wanted to be loved. Once shut out of the human society he so desperately wanted to belong to, Frankenstein’s monster sought revenge on his creator, Frankenstein. The novel is also referred to as The Modern Prometheus as a nod to the Greek myth of Prometheus, a character who created humans out of clay and gifted them with fire.

Frankenstein's Monster is described as being 8 foot (2.4 m) tall in Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein (1818). Frankenstein's Monster was first portrayed by 5 foot 11 inch (1.8 m) tall Boris Karloff in Frankenstein (1931) with the assistance of lifted boots.
