Summary

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

A deluxe edition of Mary Shelley’s haunting adventure about ambition and modernity run amok.

Now a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition with an introduction by Elizabeth Kostova and cover art by Ghost World creator Daniel Clowes, Mary Shelley’s timeless gothic novel presents the epic battle between man and monster at its greatest literary pitch. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor to the very brink of madness. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship, scientific hubris, and horror.

About the Author

Mary Shelley was born in London in 1797, daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, famous radical writers of the day. In 1814, she met and soon fell in love with the then-unknown Percy Bysshe Shelley. In December 1816, after Shelley's first wife committed suicide, Mary and Percy married. They lived in Italy from 1818 until 1822, when Percy drowned, whereupon Mary returned to London to live as a professional writer of novels, stories, and essays until her death in 1851.

Maurice Hindle edited Frankenstein and Dracula for Penguin Classics and teaches at the Open University.
