Mary Shelley's life, especially the first half of it, was as sad, melodramatic, improbable, and even tragic as any sentimental nineteenth century "sensation" novel. Given her background, Mary's intellectual prowess and literary talents are not surprising. The Godwins were at the very center of radical social, political, moral, and literary thought in the last decade of the eighteenth century.

Mary Shelley: Frankenstein The story of Victor Frankenstein's monstrous creation and the havoc it caused has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense. Robert Louis Stevenson: Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde This intriguing novel, both fantasy thriller and moral allegory, depicts the struggle of two opposing personalities - one essentially good, the other evil - for the soul of one man.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. 1 I Go to University. My name is Frankenstein – Victor Frankenstein. A fire started and the house was burnt to the ground. All your books and papers were destroyed. I was born in 1810 in the beautiful city of Geneva, in Switzerland. My father and mother loved me very much and my early life was happy. There is nothing left of your laboratory. I don’t care, Henry, I said. I was tired of my work. But tell me, Henry, what are you doing in Heidelburg?

After weeks as sea, the crew of Walton's ship finds an emaciated man, Victor Frankenstein, floating on an ice flow near death. In Walton's series of letters to his sister in England, he retells Victor's tragic story. Growing up in Geneva, Switzerland, Victor is a precocious child, quick to learn all new subjects. He is raised with Elizabeth, an orphan adopted by his family. Victor delights in the sciences and vows to someday study science. Victor prepares to leave for his studies at the University of Ingolstadt, when his mother and Elizabeth become ill with scarlet fever.

Book by Shelley, Mary
  • Editor Leonard Wolf has "given life" (pun intended) to Mary Wollestonecraft Shelley's classic. (this is the edition published in 1818) Thousands of facts on every aspect of the inspiration and evolution of the story as well as commentaries by Robert Bloch, Leonard Maltin, Forrest J. Ackerman and others. A Frankenstein filmography is also included as well as copies of Shelley's handwitten notes along with her original introduction to the 1831 edition of the book. For lovers of classic gothic horror, this edition should be the only version on your bookshelf....right next to Wolf's equally well done version of Bram Stoker's Dracula!

  • The footnotes really do invigorate this somewhat over-inflated classic (even Mary Shelley herself described her style as being "without pity for my reader"). The footnotes contain wonderful arcane and scandalous facts about the lives and love-lives of all those who inhabited Geneva that rainy summer and all those related to them: Shelley, Byron et al. I'm looking forward to acquiring Mr Wolf's annotated _Dracula_.

  • This is an extremely helpful tool to understand many aspects of the novel that may be overlooked. I would've liked to see the final edition text added to this edition. But this is a great resource, especially for students/teachers. The worst part of the whole book is the commentary thrown in at the end by hack Science Fiction writer and Killer of Dune Kevin J. Anderson. I was in a good mood until I had to see his name thrown in with another classic. Oh well.
