Today would have been the birthday of one of the most influential authors who ever lived, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.


In tribute I post a few of the shorter radio adaptations of her perennial classic, FRANKENSTEIN.

“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.” 

Radio ad for James Whale‘s 1931 classic, FRANKENSTEIN:

“…learn from my miseries, and do not seek to increase your own.”

A long version that stays true to Shelley’s masterwork – LibriVox recording of Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley.
Read by Caden Vaughn Clegg.

“Listen to me, Frankenstein. You accuse me of murder; and yet you would, with a satisfied conscience, destroy your own creature. Oh, praise the eternal justice of man!”
