Mike Bezemek, MFA ’08, reimagines Mary Shelley’s classic gothic novel, “Frankenstein,” as a tale told in tweets.
@frankendoctorvictor: A rainy November night, under a dying candle, I infused the spark. A gasp! A convulsion of limbs! A yellow eye opened. ;P WTF had I done?
The abridgment still deals with the topics of “Frankenstein,” blinding power and ambition, but with hashtags and emojis. Bezemek does justice to a classic through tweets and includes an appendix for the curious that includes the original passages that inspired the tweets.
