Frankenstein in Popular Culture

Within Mary Shelley's lifetime her novel was being adapted, and transformed, for the stage. In the nineteenth century, political cartoonists used the image of the Frankenstein monster to depict the fears of the day. Thomas Edison made a silent film version of Frankenstein in 1910, the first cinematic adaptation. The story has been adapted countless times since, and the monster has become an instantly recognizeable figure.
