Mary Shelley
Frankenstein, an ambitious young scientist, hopes to be the source of a new species, but ironically his creature, namely a man-monster, evolves into a self-acknowledged Satan who swears eternal revenge and war upon his creator and the entire human race. The monster reflects that hell is an internal condition, which is produced and increased through loneliness. His only salvation is the creation of a mate, his Eve.
