1. I think that the correct answer is Percy Bysshe Shelley. The prologue of the novel "Frankenstein" (also known as "The Modern Prometheus"), and is signed by the English author Mary Shelley, but it is commonly assumed that the foreword has been written by her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley. 2. I we believe that the correct answer is for the contest with your friends. The purpose for writing the novel "Frankenstein" it was for the contest with their friends when she was residing in Switzerland during the summer months. The contest to write a ghost story, was proposed by Lord Byron and in this contest there were Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, John W. Polidori and Marry Shelly. 3. I think that the correct answer is German for ghost stories. According to Shelly in the prologue, in the day of rain they stumbled upon the German horror stories translated into French that inspired the idea of writing the "ghost stories" that summer. The most influential of those stories was "The History of the Inconstant Lover". 4. I think that the correct answer is the use of electricity to create life through the reanimation of the corpse and the manufacture of certain part according to the galvanism. Marry Shelly I often heard the conversation between her husband and Lord Byron. That triggered his "dream awake" was the conversation on Dr. Darwin's experiments - the use of electricity for create life by reanimating the corpse and the manufacturing of a particular part of agreement for galvanism. 5. I we believe that the correct answer is because the writer portrays human passions more integral and at the command of any ordinary relations of existing events could picture. In the preface of the "Frankenstein", Percy Shelley writes that he does not consider himself as "merely weaving a the series of supernatural terror." He admits that the inspiration came from "a mere ghost story or enchantment", but that conveys the human passion more comprehensive and commanding than any regular relationship could be. 6. I we believe that the correct answer is "The Iliad", "The Tempest" and "midsummer Night's Dream, "the Lost Paradise" of The work on human the nature has inspired "Frankenstein" were Homer's epic the "Iliad" of Shakespeare's dramas "The The tempest" and "Midsummer night's Dream" and Milton's epic "Paradise Lost". Percy Shelly states that have not scrupled to innovate in the elementary school the principles of human nature, but their combinations. 7. Marry Shelly began to write the novel "Frankenstein", due to the competition with his friends when she was residing in Switzerland during the rainy summer night. The contest to write a ghost story, was proposed by Lord Byron, and in this contest participated of Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, John W. Polidori and Marriage with Shelly.
