Frankenstein is a classic text that many feel it is the greatest horror novel of all time. Frankenstein tells the story of gifted scientist Victor Frankenstein who succeeds in giving life to a being of his own creation. However, this is not the perfect specimen he imagines that it will be, but rather a hideous creature who is rejected by Victor and mankind in general. One of the Morals of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a warning. Not so much a warning against scientific discovery and creations, but against the blasphemous arrogance and disdain of challenging God at His own creations.
