A beautiful new hardback edition of Mary Shelley's Gothic horror classic, Frankenstein, to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the book's first publication INCLUDES A CULTURAL HISTORY OF FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER Navigating the Arctic, the captain of a ship rescues a man wandering near death across the ice caps. How the man got there reveals itself a story of ambition, murder and revenge. As a young scientist, Victor Frankenstein pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final frontier and create life. But his creation is a monster stitched together from grave-plundered body parts who has no place in the world, and his existence can only lead to tragedy.

About Author

Mary Shelley was born in 1797 to the writer Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, a well-known anarchist and atheist writer. In 1814, when she was sixteen, she fell in love with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and they eloped to France. In 1816 the couple travelled to Lake Geneva to spend the summer with the poet Lord Byron. Mary was inspired to write her Gothic tale Frankenstein after Byron arranged a ghost story competition during their stay. Completed when Mary was only nineteen, Frankenstein remains one of the greatest horror stories ever published.
