Re: Does anyone else find it kinda mind blowing that Dracula is from 1897 and Frankenstein is from 1818?
Fair. Radcliffe is lampooned in Northanger Abbey, written in 1803, so obviously the Gothic thing was well established by then. I guess I associate Frankenstein with the time it was written in part because I took a college class on "Romanticism and the Age of Revolution", whereas I feel vaguer about Dracula.
From the Wikipedia page of The Monk: One of the three fictional films shown in the 2022 video game Immortality is an adaptation of the novel, called Ambrosio. So I guess someone's still reading it.
