(1) The writer is, of course, perfectly aware that “Frankenstein” was the maker of the monster and not the monster itself. As, however, Mrs. Shelley omitted to supply the latter with a name, he sees no reason why it should not be granted the modern privilege accorded to motor cars, etc., and therefore christens Frankenstein's creation after its maker. This explanation is inserted lest the writer's name should be added to the list of those who, for the greater part of a century, have been pilloried for the perpetration of the “Frankenstein blunder.”
