Frankenstein or The Destruction of a Creator (An Allusion in a Minute #2)

the (book) supplier: Welcome to An Allusion in a Minute. Today’s allusion is from literature and is entitled Frankenstein or The Destruction of a Creator. I am the (book) supplier.

the (book) supplier: So before we get started I have a few rules.

typewriter: seriously? rules? you need to relax.

the (book) supplier: No, these are important. [c.u.] The first rule of Frankenstein is Frankenstein is not the monster. [even closer] The second rule of Frankenstein is Frankenstein is not the monster.

typewriter: what’s the third rule? one Frankenstein at a time?

the (book) supplier: No. And that’s not actually how the next rule goes. Anyway, about Frankenstein. Frankenstein was this guy who was obsessed with learning the secret of life and reanimation of corpses…

typewriter: my turn… 😉

the (book) supplier: You know, if you’re going to preempt me to show your silly cartoons, the least you could do is get the story right. You are 0/2 today.

typewriter: doesn’t matter. the idea is right.

the (book) supplier: I’ll give you that the idea is right, but it does matter. We don’t want to give false information. Here’s what you need to know about allusions to Frankenstein: Frankenstein created something that eventually destroyed him, so when you see allusions to Frankenstein, you want to look for something that destroys its creator. Easy, peasy. That’s all you have to remember.

typewriter: TAKE AWAYS: 1) Frankenstein is not the monster. 2) Look for something that destroys (or can destroy) its creator.

the (book) supplier: That felt like it went really fast. So that’s it for this episode. If you caught the pop culture allusions, or have questions about this or any other allusion, leave me a comment here on YouTube, on the show notes at https://thebooksupplier.com/allusions or on my Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/thebooksupplier. Thanks for watching An Allusion in a Minute. I am the (book) supplier wishing you happy reading. Don’t forget to be awesome.
