Man, Monsters, & Martians: Ray Bradbury & Mary Shelley - Lecture with Jonathan Eller“It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils.” This fateful moment in Victor Frankenstein’s narrative will always associate the month of November with Mary Shelley’s classic novel. For Ray Bradbury, the month of October has always been the focus for his masterful tales and novels of the supernatural; like Poe in the 19th century, readers in the 20th century would call Ray Bradbury “the October Man.” In this illustrated lecture, Jonathan Eller will show how some of Ray Bradbury’s unsettling stories echo the themes and situations of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece.
