Brilliant young scientist Victor Frankenstein’s drive to create life leads him to animate a creature assembled from the bodies of the dead. Horrified at the result, Frankenstein flees. Alone, it learns of its ghastly nature and dreams of how it might find some kind of happiness. Seeking out Frankenstein, the creature offers a terrible ultimatum, create for it a companion or suffer its merciless revenge.


Since its first publication in 1818 Frankenstein has become a literary classic and a celebrated fixture of pop culture. Filmed repeatedly and generating dozens of sequels both in print and on screen, Mary Shelley’s novel still stands alone as a source of chilling thrills and macabre atmosphere while continuing to generate fresh insights and interpretations. Frankenstein, the man of science unprepared for what he has created, and his creation, a misbegotten innocent turned to the dark side by rejection and loneliness, are unforgettable characters with ageless appeal. Their conflict, and their strange bond, leads them from Germany to England and finally to a tragic climax far into the frozen North.


With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Frankenstein is both modern and readable.

Her greatest achievement was piecing together one of the most terrifying and renowned stories of all time: Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. Shelley conceived Frankenstein in, according to her, "a waking dream."

This vision was simply of a student kneeling before a corpse brought to life. Yet this tale of a mad creator and his abomination has inspired a multitude of storytellers and artists. She died on February 1, 1851.,
