Overview

Extensively annotated, with pictures and a section on Shelley's life and works

Since it was first published in 1818, Mary Shelley's seminal novel has generated countless print, stage, and screen adaptations, but none has ever matched the power and philosophical resonance of the original. Composed as part of a challenge with Byron and Shelley to conjure up the most terrifying ghost story, "Frankenstein" narrates the chilling tale of a being created by a bright young scientist and the catastrophic consequences that ensue. Considered by many to be the first science-fiction novel, the tragic tale of Victor Frankenstein and the tortured creation he rejects is a classic fable about the pursuit of knowledge, the nature of beauty, and the monstrosity inherent to man.
