Blog Post Image: I had been a fan of dark stories (Poe, especially) when I first encountered Frankenstein at 19, but it was the first book that inspired me to read – and later, write – horror with a feminist perspective. It deploys the myth of Prometheus to critique the notion of creation, technology, and patriarchal society. The themes of women and horror in the short story collection Sihir Perempuan were influenced by this book as well as other works by women writers such as Margaret Atwood and Anne Sexton. #influentialbooks #JakartaPostBookworm #interview#maryshelley #inspiration #womenwriters #books #favoritebook #sihirperempuan
