Abstract

In collaboration with The University of Dundee, Wyvern Poetrs recently took part in the International Festival of the Humanities: Being Human; Origins and Endings (15-24 November 2018). In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, and in response to Dundee’s theme of Frankenstein Returns, we produced the pamphlet 'Frankenstein’s Poetic Progeny'.

Our event on November 21st included individual readings against a backdrop of projected images. Our poems consider present-day ways in which we threaten to become monsters ourselves; they also reassess what it means to be human.

This is a diverse collection is sometimes gravely poignant and sometimes darkly comic - the subject matter ranges from posthumous existence and artificial life to online dating.
