Frankenstein, Hardback Book

Frankenstein Hardback

Part of the Penguin Classic Horror series

Hardback

Description

Part of a new six-volume series of the best in classic horror, selected by award-winning director Guillermo del Toro. The epic battle between man and monster reaches its greatest pitch in the famous story of Frankenstein.

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 himself to the very brink.

How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship ... and horror. Mary Shelley was born in 1797, the only daughter of writers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin.

In 1814 she eloped with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, whom she married in 1816.

She is best remembered as the author of Frankenstein, but she wrote several other works, including Valpergaand The Last Man.
