"Penny Dreadful is a British-American horror drama television series...[that] draws upon many characters from 19th-century Irish and British fiction, including...Victor Frankenstein and his monster from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein." -Wikipedia

Additionally, in an NPR interview, series creator John Logan cited William Wordsworth's poetry as the inspiration behind the series. Multiple episodes of the show reference or quote works from different Romantic writers.
