M. Waldman in Frankenstein | Shmoop

By Mary Shelley

M. Waldman

M. Waldman is the sexy professor who encourages Victor's interest in chemistry, which he describes as modern-day alchemy. With salt-and-pepper hair and a "remarkably erect" posture—not to mention a face made for TV—you know this guy has a chili pepper by his name. No wonder Victor starts studying with him.
