Description

Victor Frankenstein learns the secret of producing life, and so, by putting together parts of various corpses, he creates the Frankenstein monster. The monster is huge and disformed, but he means no harm to anyone--until constant ill treatment drives him to murder and revenge. This easy-to-read version of Mary Shelley's long-standing masterpiece easily captures the sadness and horror of the original.




About the Author
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was born on August 30, 1797 and died on February 1, 1851. She was a novelist, essayist and biographer, best known for Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus. Her other published works include historical novels: Valperga, The Fortunes of Perkin Warbeck, and Falkner; and the travel memoir Rambles in Germany and Italy. This is her first posthumously published work, though her story and characters of Frankenstein have been revised and utilized in countless unauthorized works and adaptations.
