Frankenstein


Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus, is an old classic about a scientist who creates a monster and the awful events he unintentionally causes. Victor Frankenstein is a hard-working young man at university who discovers how to give life to an inanimate body and uses his knowledge to create a man-monster. He believes his discovery will lead to further scientific advances, but when he succeeds in bringing his creation to life, he is filled with loathing.


Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a gripping story about the ethics of creation and the consequences of trauma, is one of the most influential Gothic novels in British literature. It is as relevant today as it is haunting.


★★★ Frankenstein ★★★, an edited version, adds classic illustrations, study guides, literary critiques, Mary Shelley biography, and historical context.
