Description

Corey McCall (Elmira College) and Borna Radnik (Kingston University) argue what makes Frankenstein’s monster so horrific and unsettling is that he/it resists ontological and epistemological categorization. The Monster functions both as a reminder and a remainder of the void at the center of being. They then consider how these themes are taken up and transformed by Roy Batty’s desire for “more life” in Blade Runner.
