At a certain point in [Frankenstein], the monster is heading back to his “hovel” in the woods and stumbles upon someone’s lost “leathern portmanteau” which contains three books – a volume of Plutarch’s Lives (he doesn’t say specifically other than it contained the lives of the first leaders of the ancient republics, so maybe that can be intuited(?) – extra credit available there!) The second is Goethe’s The Sufferings of Young Werther (a.k.a. “The Sorrows of Young Werther”) and the third is John Milton’s Paradise Lost.

To complete a Frankenslam, participants will need to accumulate One Billion Volts.

Or more…

So far I’ve read:

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von – The Sorrows of Young Werther

Milton, John – Paradise Lost
