Monstrous Bodies

One way to think of haunting is that of the body as capital (think of Charles Dickens and A Christmas Carol or Mary Shelley’s Franksentein)

In this sense, capitalism and the spectre, the remains of the body in a posthuman world are created by an oppressive – systemic capital of the body

Victor claims, “I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation and life…I became myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter” (Shelley 57).
