about

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.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) was an English author. She was also the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, whose works she edited. A political radical, Frankenstein is her most famous work.
