Adapting Frankenstein : The Monster's Eternal Lives in Popular Culture Paperback / softback

Edited by Dennis R. Cutchins, Dennis R. Perry


Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of the most popular novels in western literature.

It has been adapted and re-assembled in countless forms, from Hammer Horror films to young-adult books and bandes dessinees.

Beginning with the idea of the 'Frankenstein Complex', this edited collection provides a series of creative readings that explore the elaborate intertextual networks that make up the novel's remarkable afterlife.

It broadens the scope of research on Frankenstein while deepening our understanding of a text that, 200 years after its original publication, continues to intrigue and terrify us in new and unexpected ways. -- .
