Who are the guys with Frankenstein?
Next to Frankenstein’s unnamed monster is (from L to R) Ryan Gosling’s anonymous character from Drive, Clint Eastwood as The Man with No Name and Edward Norton’s [redacted] from Fight Club
Didn’t Frankenstein’s monster call himself Adam in the book?
Not directly. He does compare himself to Adam a couple of times though.
A quick ctrl-f on Gutenberg* pulls up the following:
Remember, that I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed.
Like Adam, I was apparently united by no link to any other being
in existence; but his state was far different from mine in every
I was alone. I remembered Adam’s
supplication to his Creator. But where was mine? He had abandoned me,
and in the bitterness of my heart I cursed him.
And as I’ve already waved bye-bye to the Topic Bus, I also think that was one of the names Victor considered for him in the recent TV series “Penny Dreadful”
So, more likely to be an Adam than, say, a Dave or a Mike but it’s not absolutely explicit.
Of course, it’s always possible my Google-fu is weak, seeing as how I have been drinking.
*Things like this remind me why the internet is so awesome.
Every time some one meantions that show I think: “Cool Penny Dreadfuls got a tv series.” Then I notice the lack of s in the end.
Knew every one but the Fight Club reference.
This guy’s work is awesome. He pops up on Ffffffound regularly.
