Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus: Home

A Gumberg Library research guide

This guide is designed to quickly connect student researchers to all materials available through the Gumberg Library on Mary Shelley's pioneering and perennially popular cautionary tale, Frankenstein. It will connect the researcher to reference works, print books and ebooks, databases for articles, dissertations, and good content from the Internet. This page will connect the user not just to literary resources, but resources in theology, philosophy, science, and medicine, since this novel has been used as a lens through which to examine ethical and other sorts of issues in all of these fields.
