Description

When two nineteenth-century Oxford students -- the religious Victor Frankenstein, a serious researcher, and the atheistic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley -- form an unlikely friendship which leads to heated discussions on the notions of creation and life, the result is a tour-de-force from one of the world's most accomplished authors. Filled with literary lights of the day and penned in period-perfect prose, this is sure to become a twenty-first century classic.
