Frankenstein’s monster (also called the monster, Frankenstein’s creature or just Frankenstein) is a fictional character that first appeared in Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. In popular culture, the creature is often referred to as “Frankenstein” after his creator Victor Frankenstein, but in the novel the creature has no name, and this usage of “Frankenstein” is generally considered incorrect. He does call himself, when speaking to Victor, the “Adam of your labours”. He is also variously referred to as a “creature”, “fiend”, “spectre”, “the demon”, “wretch”, “devil”, “thing”, “being” and “ogre” in the novel.
