collecting the leftovers

Just had an idea thinking about our work from the previous week between the draft, 1818 and 1831 editions of Frankenstein… What if we did something with the parts of the Frankenstein text that were shed or recreated in its various stages, and “resurrect” them to construct a new body in our redoing of PG. Maybe that’s not the best way of putting it… Those changes we observed are testimony of the multiplicity and malleability of text… of text as a location of change and moving parts. What if those “abjected” pieces came back to haunt and interrupt our new PG narrative?
