In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelly, Frankenstein is the surname of the main character, Victor Frankenstein. Victor was the scientist who created the creature after harnessing the power of electricity and developing a secret technique from his studies in chemistry and other sciences.A common misconception is that the creature Victor created was named "Frankenstein." This is false in the novel, as the creature was never given a proper name, though it was given many informal names such as "devil", "daemon", "monster", and "fiend." This misconception was propagated by a misleading stage adaption in which the monster was referred to as "Frankenstein."Since the novel was published, "Frankenstein" has often erroneously been used to refer to the monster. Though this usage is technically incorrect, researchers have deemed the use of "Frankenstein" to refer to the monster as well-established and acceptable.

Frankenstein is a horror novel written by Mary Shelly in 1818. The story follows the tales of three characters' point of view in an introverted fashion, similar to a matryoshka doll.The novel opens with Captain Robert Walton, who is on an expedition sailing north, writing to his sister Margaret (who is intended to be the audience reading the novel) about his journeys and finding Victor Frankenstein, who Walton rescues from certain death.Frankenstein proceeds to recall his life story to Walton, who relays it to his sister in the form of letters. In his tale, Frankenstein tells of his creating a terrible monster, known simply as "the creature" among other things but is never given a proper name. It is a common misconception that "Frankenstein" is the name of the monster, but this is false as Frankenstein is the scientist who creates the monster.Frankenstein then continues to recall the creature catching up to him and telling him its own life story, which Frankenstein relays to Walton, who again relays it to Margaret. The overall novel both opens and closes with Captain Walton.At the age of 17, the novel Frankenstein was actually written by Shelly as part of a friend's challenge to create horror stories to pass the time during a rain-in at a vacation home. Shelly would later claim that the actual idea of the story and the monster came to her in a dream in which she awoke and beheld in terror the creature of Frankenstein at her bedside.Frankenstein is an important work of literature that is considered to be one of the earliest works of science fiction. The book has had considerable influence in the creation of horror films with over 50 films and other screenworks having been inspired by the tragic story of Victor Frankenstein and his creature. Frankenstein is also an early opponent of scientific advancement, warning against the negative consequences hasty advances in science can bring forth.The novel is considered to be one of the greatest works of literature in the English language. As a result, Frankenstein is often a required literary reading in many secondary educations.
