Frankenstein was published in 1818, the work of a 21-year-old genius named Mary Shelley. Hundreds of movies, adaptations, and monster masks later, its reputation remains so lively that the title has become its own word in the English language. Victor Frankenstein, a scientist, discovers the secret of reanimating the dead. After he rejects his hideous creation, not even the farthest poles of the earth will keep his bitter monster from seeking an inhuman revenge. Inspired by a uniquely Romantic view of science’s possibilities, Shelley’s masterpiece ultimately wrestles with the hidden shadows of the human mind.

Mary Shelley: Frankenstein (oder: Der moderne Prometheus) Der indonesische Vulkan Tambora spuckte nach einem gewaltigen Ausbruch – der größten Vulkan-Eruption, seit 20.000 Jahren – Millionen Tonnen Asche in die Atmosphäre und sorgte für das legendäre »Jahr ohne Sommer«, 1816 schrieb man. In der Schweiz, in einer Villa am Genfer See, traf sich eine sinistre Runde und schrieb Schauergeschichten. Im Zentrum der Gruppe: Mary Shelley, die spätere Autorin des »Frankenstein«. Von all jenen literarischen Werken der Gruppe, die in dieser Zeit entstanden, war »Frankenstein«, das bei weitem folgenreichste, und gehört, wie »Dracula«, zu den absoluten Klassikern der phantastischen Literatur. Die Autorin, gerade 20 Jahre alt, halb Bohème, halb Hippie, zeigte in diesem düsteren Sommer im Kreise ihrer intellektuellen Freunde ihr literarisches Talent und schuf mit Frankensteins Monster eine der großen Symbolfiguren der Populärkultur. • Für die eBook-Version neu lektorierte Ausgabe • Mit aktuellem Begleitwort • Mit Hypertext-Inhaltsverzeichnis und vollständig verlinkten Kapiteln ---- eClassica – Die Buchreihe, die Klassiker neu belebt.

Mary Shelley's deceptively simple story of Victor Frankenstein and the creature he brings to life, first published in 1818, is now more widely read—and more widely discussed by scholars—than any other work of the Romantic period. From the creature's creation to his wild lament over the dead body of his creator in the Arctic wastes, the story retains its narrative hold on the reader even as it spins off ideas in rich profusion. Macdonald and Scherf's edition of Frankenstein has been widely acclaimed as an outstanding edition of the novel—for the general reader and the student as much as for the scholar. The editors use as their copy-text the original 1818 version, and detail in an appendix all of Shelley's later revisions. They also include a range of contemporary documents that shed light on the historical context from which this unique masterpiece emerged. Macdonald and Scherf have now revised and updated their introduction, notes and bibliography, and have added new documents (including a review of Frankenstein by Percy Shelley).

D.L. Macdonald and Kathleen Scherf’s edition of Frankenstein has been widely acclaimed as an outstanding edition of the novel—for the general reader and the student as much as for the scholar. The editors use as their copy-text the original 1818 version, and detail in an appendix all of Shelley’s later revisions. They also include a range of contemporary documents that shed light on the historical context from which this unique masterpiece emerged. New to this edition is a discussion of Percy Shelley’s role in contributing to the first draft of the novel. Recent scholarship has provoked considerable interest in the degree to which Percy Shelley contributed to Mary Shelley’s original text, and this edition’s updated introduction discusses this scholarship. A new appendix also includes Lord Byron’s “A Fragment” and John William Polidori’s The Vampyre, works that are engaging in their own right and that also add further insights into the literary context of Frankenstein.

At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, "Frankenstein" tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering "the cause of generation and life" and "bestowing animation upon lifeless matter," Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein. "Frankenstein," an instant bestseller and an important ancestor of both the horror and science fiction genres, not only tells a terrifying story, but also raises rofound, disturbing questions about the very nature of life and the place of humankind within the cosmos: What does it mean to be human? What responsibilities do we have to each other? How far can we go in tampering with Nature? In our age, filled with news of organ donation genetic engineering, and bio-terrorism, these questions are more relevant than ever. Karen Karbiener received a Ph.D. from Columbia University and currently teaches literature at New York University."
