Two centuries ago, a teenage genius created a monster that still walks among us. In 1818, Mary Shelley publishedFrankenstein, and in doing so set forth into the world a scientist and his monster. The daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft, famed womens rights advocate, and William Godwin, radical political thinker and writer, Mary Shelley is considered the mother of the modern genres of horror and science fiction. At its core, however, ShelleysFrankensteinis a contemplation on what it means to be human, what it means to chase perfection, and what it means to fear things suchsuch things as ugliness, loneliness, and rejection.

In celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the publication ofFrankenstein, the Lilly Library at Indiana University presentsFrankenstein 200: The Birth, Life, and Resurrection of Mary Shelleys Monster. This beautifully illustrated catalog looks closely at Mary Shelleys life and influences, examines the hundreds of reincarnations her book and its characters have enjoyed, and highlights the vast, deep, and eclectic collections of the Lilly Library. This exhibition catalog is a celebration of books, of the monstrousness that exists within us all, and of the genius of Mary Shelley.
