The Original Gothic-Horror Literary Classic

Mary Shelley's deceptively simple story of Victor Frankenstein and the creature he brings to life, first published in 1818, is now more widely read-and more widely discussed by scholars-than any other work of the Romantic period. From the creature's creation to his wild lament over the dead body of his creator in the Arctic wastes, the story retains its narrative hold on the reader even as it spins off ideas in rich profusion.

About the Author:

Mary Shelley (30 August 1797 - 1 February 1851) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. She died in London in 1851.

This is the definitive collectors edition and is a stunning and impressive uanabridged representation of a classic literary work.

Synopsis:

En el verano de 1816, el poeta Percy Bysshe Shelley y su esposa Mary se reunieron con Lord Byron y su médico Polidori en una villa a orillas del lago Leman. A instancias de Lord Byron y para animar una velada tormentosa, decidieron que cada uno inventaría una historia de fantasmas. La más callada y reservada, Mary Shelley, dio vida así a quien sería su personaje más famoso: el doctor Frankenstein. Al cabo de un año completaría la novela, hoy día un clásico imperecedero de la literatura. La historia es de todos conocida: un científico decide crear una criatura con vida propia a la que luego rechaza. Metáfora sobre la vida, la libertad y el amor, Frankenstein es una maravillosa fábula con todos los ingredientes de los grandes mitos.
