Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus

Overview

Meet the Author

Mary Shelley was born the child of two of the most famous free-thinking intellectuals then living, and she eloped with one of the greatest poets of the age. She wrote her great novel about human monstrosity as part of a contest between friends during a trip to Switzerland in 1814, at a time when she was consistently either pregnant, nursing, or mourning a dead child, and also struggling with her husband’s debt and pursuit of sexual relationships with other women.

    Best one yet

    If you are looking to read Frankenstein for free on your Nook, this is the one to get. While there are a few random characters in the text, this version is by far the easiest to read.

    Before the rewrite.

    This edition is very close to the 1818 original. Mary Shelley gave Victor Frankenstein a break in the 1831 rewrite. In this version Victor, and by implication you and me, is clearly responsible for his actions. The failure of the 1831 edition was to allow Victor off the hook. History has been gentle on Victor Frankenstein. Read this book and decide who is the monster.
