Free Posters: The Origin of Frankenstein Set

Born in 1797, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was a British author best known for her timeless novel, Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus. Shelley began writing this classic during the summer of 1816, known today as the “Year Without a Summer,” while staying near Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Stuck indoors because of the dreary weather, Shelley and her companions challenged each other to write ghost stories. Inspired by discussions about science and the nature of life, Shelley wrote what would later be published as Frankenstein.

These classroom posters feature a quote from the novel’s introduction in which Shelley describes the terrifying creature she imagined when writing the story. Which poster version will you choose: the beauty or the beast?
