Frankenstein, Hardback


Frankenstein is the most famous novel by Mary Shelley: a dark Faustian parable of science misused that was an immediate success on its publication in 1818.

Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant but wayward scientist, builds a human from dead flesh and then, horrified at what he has done, abandons his creation.

The creature, an outcast because of his appearance, learns language and becomes civilized, but when rejected by society seeks revenge on his creator.

So begins a cycle of destruction in which Frankenstein and his 'monster' lose all vestiges of their humanity in monomaniacal hatred.With an Afterword by David Pinching.
