Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature
From the US National Library of Medicine comes this neat well-llustrated online exhibition on the genesis of Frankenstein and the relationship between key themes in Mary Shelley's novel and the development of medical science. One small criticism, however, is that navigation of the website would have been made so much easier with the inclusion of a "next" button - one or two more links to other online resources would also have been useful. (Thanks to the Librarian's Index to the Internet "new this week" for the link.)
