Begin reading the novel, first published in 1818, when Mary Shelley was nineteen years old.  Start on page 5 of our text.

In the last ten minutes of class, in the BODY of an email (subject “Frankentalk C” or “Frankentalk D”–depending on your section), tell me how far you have read and what your first impressions are.  For example, what plot, character or thematic elements catch your early attention?  Why these?  Please write 4-5 sentences.  Thank you.
