The story of Victor Frankenstein and of the monstrous creature he created has held readers spellbound ever since it was published almost two centuries ago. On the surface, it is a novel of tense and steadily mounting horror; but on a more profound level, it offers searching illumination of the human condition in its portrayal of a scientist who oversteps the bounds of conscience, and of a monster brought to life in an alien world, ever more desperately attempting to escape the torture of his solitude. A novel of hallucinatory intensity, Frankenstein represents one of the most striking flowerings of the Romantic imagination.

Originally published in1818, this 2000 edition has a new forward by Walter James Miller, an afterword by Harold Bloom, a short biography of Mary Shelley, and a bibliography. This is part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum. See Related Items below.
