What we find terrifying in the image of Frankenstein is tied to his depiction in pop-culture: the bolts in his neck, the green skin, the flat head. But what inspired Mary Shelley to create the monster was a nightmare that, upon waking from, she instantly knew what feeling she wanted to capture. In this chapter of "The Modern Prometheus", the monster first opens his eyes, but this isn't what scares us. No, it is the doctor, whose irresponsible handling of his creation so unsettles us. The first thing the monster sees is his creator's look of horror before fleeing. But when the doctor returns to find the monster missing, the gravity of his actions drops hard upon our shoulders.
