In her 1818 novel, , Mary Shelley tells the iconic story of Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his monstrous creation. But Shelley's novel is more than just one of the greatest horror stories in English literature. It is also a powerful exploration of the theme of knowledge; its potential, its limitations, and its dangers. In the character of Victor Frankenstein, Shelley cautions against knowledge unrestrained by wisdom. Victor is recklessly driven by his ambition, his hunger to harness the powers of life and death, which was influenced by the ancient Greek metaphysicians he loved as a youth. When combined with his incredible intellect, this foolhardy ambition turns the blessings of knowledge into a curse. Victor tampers with forces beyond his understanding and control. And it is only when his monster has been unleashed on the world that Victor understands that just because you know how to do something, doesn't mean you should.
