Why did Mary Shelley's Frankenstein harness electricity to create his monster? This exploration of the early nineteenth century obsession with electricity as a force of life takes in frog's legs, executed criminals, the Anatomy Act, steam intellect societies, the Chair of Dr De Sanctis, a spontaneously generated mite and more.
