Frankenstein Adaptations: Jane Webb Loudon’s The Mummy! – Professor Lisa Hopkins
Sun 21st October 2:00pm - 3:00pm
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.
