Description

Mary Shelley┬┐s Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, tells the story of a scientist (Victor Frankenstein) who creates a grotesque but sapient creature. Frankenstein┬┐s monster may not be the scariest component of the story; it also sheds light on a darker side of humanity.On one gloomy night in May, 1816, she, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, and others all promised to write a ghost story, prompting Mary Shelley to write this novel. She began the story at age 18, and it was first published when she was 20.
