Sun 21st October 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Tickets for this event have gone off sale at SIV but are available on the door on the day (subject to availability)
The Mummy! (1827) is one of the earliest, most interesting responses to Frankenstein. It explores the idea of atheism in Mary Shelley’s novel, in which a man gives life to a new creature. Lisa Hopkins discusses Loudon’s entertaining novel which includes the reanimation of an Egyptian mummy and is a principled comment on Frankenstein.
