Victor Frankenstein,a serious-minded student from Switzerland,meets 'Mad Shelley',a poet and atheist,at Oxford University.Soon,the two young men are deep in discussion of electrical science and natural philosophy.In this fervid and fervent atmosphere Frankenstein begins to contemplate new principles and new beliefs.
Frankenstein embarks on his anatomy
experiments in a barn in the secluded village of Headington,just outside Oxford. But the cadavers supplied by the local coroner are frequently damaged or decaying,so he moves his coils and fluids to a deserted pottery manufactory in Limehouse.Here he makes contact with the Doomsday men - the resurrectionists - who now cross the Thames in the dead of night to bring him fresh corpses of the recently dead . . . . .
'The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein', with its spine-chilling narrative and its ingeniously clever twists of plot and character,will become a classic of the twenty-first century.It is another brilliant example of the power of Peter Ackroyd's imagination.
