Lol, another "everyone else is ignorant apart from us" thread.
The beautiful talented wife of the equally talented major English Poet Percy Bysshe Shelley
"Mary Shelley was born on August 30, 1797, in London, England. She married poet Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1816. Two years later, she published her most
famous novel, Frankenstein. She wrote several other books, including Valperga (1823), The Last Man (1826), the autobiographical Lodore (1835) and the
posthumously published Mathilde. Shelley died of brain cancer on February 1, 1851, in London, England."

Victor Frankenstein, the "Adam of your labours" (in reference to the first man created in the Bible). Victor refers to the monster as "creature",
"fiend", "spectre", "the demon", "wretch", "devil", "thing", "being" and "ogre"."
I can vouch for Wikipedia's accuracy here having read the novel many times and studied it.
