This paper examines how, when Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" was first published in 1818, the reviews were mixed. The Tory Quarterly Review slammed it, stating that it inculcates no lesson of conduct, manners, or morality This paper argues that this review was nonsensical and how in fact, "Frankenstein" teaches a lesson that is as relevant today as it was in the early 19th century. This lesson is that man has no business playing God, and that attempting to do so can have catastrophic consequences.
