Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein pioneered the deeply explored battle between monster and man. Follow three narratives in this ageless tale that navigates fear, fixation, love, and desire, while finding an anchor in humanity.
The combination of fantastical elements and scientific exploration makes this Mary Shelley novel one of the first true models of science fiction. This new edition of Frankenstein stays true to the classic origins, but is provided with a whole new life by a beautifully designed, jacketed hardcover format.
An introduction by writer and English professor Catherine Steindler, an author’s introduction, and a timeline of the life and times of Mary Shelley completes this highly collectible edition.
