Analysis

Frankenstein Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG

There is nothing to see here, people. Poor Victor doesn't even get to consummate his wedding—although there is a moment when Victor embraces Elizabeth's dead body with "ardour" (23.7). Still, we're pretty sure that's just shock and not anything more perverse.
