Frankenstein : Or, the Modern Prometheus
by Mary Shelley and Harold Bloom and Douglas Clegg




Overview -
The story of Victor Frankenstein and the monstrous creature he created has held readers spellbound ever since it was published almost two centuries ago. On the surface, it is a novel of tense and steadily mounting horror; but on a more profound level, it offers searching illumination of the human condition in its portrayal of a scientist who oversteps the bounds of conscience, and of a monster brought to life in an alien world, ever more desperately attempting to escape the torture of his solitude. A novel of hallucinatory intensity, "Frankenstein" represents one of the most striking flowerings of the Romantic imagination.
With a New Introduction by Douglas Clegg
And an Afterword by Harold Bloom
