You have all your friends and family together, but because there's a corpse in the room, the whole thing is a bit of a downer. Imagine what it's like to be Al Gore -- that's what it's like to be at a funeral. And that's just when things go according to plan. But as with buying a new home or getting tested for VD, sometimes things go horribly awry.
Frankenstein The embalming essay told by Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein builds the creature in the attic of his boarding house through an ambiguously described scientific method consisting of chemistry from his time as a student at University of Ingolstadt and alchemy largely based on the writings of ParacelsusAlbertus Magnusand Cornelius Agrippa.
Frankenstein is disgusted by his creation, however, and flees from it in horror. Frightened, and unaware of his own identity, the monster wanders through the wilderness. He finds brief solace beside a remote cottage inhabited by a family of peasants.
Eavesdropping, the creature familiarizes himself with their lives and learns to speak, whereby he becomes eloquent, educated, and well-mannered. The creature eventually introduces himself to the family's blind father, who treats him with kindness.
When the rest of the family returns, however, they are frightened of him and drive him away. Hopeful but bewildered, the creature rescues a peasant girl from a river but is shot in the shoulder by a man who claims her.
He finds Frankenstein's journal in the pocket of the jacket he found in the laboratory, and swears revenge on his creator for leaving him alone in a world that hates him. The monster kills Victor's younger brother William upon learning of the boy's relation to his hated creator.
When Frankenstein retreats to the mountains, the monster approaches him at the summit and asks his creator to build him a female mate. In return, he promises to disappear with his mate and never trouble humankind again; the monster then threatens to destroy everything Frankenstein holds dear should he fail.
Frankenstein agrees and builds a female creature, but, aghast at the possibility of creating a race of monsters, destroys his experiment. In response, the monster kills Frankenstein's best friend Henry Clerval, and later kills Frankenstein's bride Elizabeth Lavenza on their wedding night; whereupon Frankenstein's father dies of grief.
Frankenstein dedicates himself to destroying his creation. Searching for the monster in the Arctic CircleFrankenstein falls into the freezing water, contracting severe pneumonia. A ship exploring the region encounters the dying Frankenstein, who relates his story to the ship's captain, Robert Walton.
Later, the monster boards the ship; but, upon finding Frankenstein dead, is overcome by grief and pledges to incinerate himself at "the Northernmost extremity of the globe".
He then departs, never to be seen again. Boris Karloff as the classic s film version with an assist from makeup artist Jack Pierce Frankenstein's monster in an editorial cartoon, Shelley described Frankenstein's monster as an 8-foot-tall 2. His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful.
His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun-white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion and straight black lips.
A picture of the creature appeared in the edition. Early stage portrayals dressed him in a toga, shaded, along with the monster's skin, a pale blue. Throughout the 19th century, the monster's image remained variable according to the artist. The best-known image of Frankenstein's monster in popular culture derives from Boris Karloff 's portrayal in the movie Frankensteinin which he wore makeup applied, and according to a format designed by, Jack P.
Pierce and possibly suggested by director James Whale. Universal Studioswhich released the film, was quick to secure ownership of the copyright for the makeup format. But their makeup replicated the iconic look first worn by Karloff. To this day, the image of Karloff's face is owned by his daughter's company, Karloff Enterprises, for which Universal replaced Karloff's features with Glenn Strange's in most of their marketing.
Since Karloff's portrayal, the creature almost always appears as a towering, undead -like figure, often with a flat-topped angular head and bolts on his neck to serve as electrical connectors or grotesque electrodes.Godchecker guide to SERQUET (also known as Selket): Goddess of Bandages and Curing Scorpion Bites.
