Literary Gladiators: Episode 4- "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley

Yes, we were on a bit of a hiatus from uploading episodes. This does not mean we have faded away, for we have done anything but that. The five-part filming session from January is still slated to be released in completion by the beginning of June and this includes the episode that is being released. Here, Nicole Sandra, Chris Steen, Charlie Gulizia, and I discuss and debate Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, which could be looked at through two lenses. The first is one of horror's finest works. While it contains plenty of horror elements, it tends to explore a more Romantic background with which plenty of other human flaws and the possession of intelligence are brought into the equation.

I thoroughly enjoyed taping each of the episodes, but this is quite a zany one! The longest of the bunch at over eighteen minutes long, but it shows that this was quite an intense discussion.
