IT WAS ALREADY ONE IN THE MORNING; THE RAIN PATTERED DISMALLY AGAINST THE PANES, AND MY CANDLE WAS NEARLY BURNT OUT, WHEN, BY THE GLIMMER OF THE HALF-EXTINGUISHED LIGHT, I SAW THE DULL YELLOW EYE OF THE CREATURE OPEN... WRITTEN WHEN MARY SHELLEY WAS ONLY NINETEEN-YEARS OLD, THIS CHILLING TALE OF A YOUNG SCIENTIST S DESIRE TO CREATE LIFE STILL RESONATES TODAY. VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN S MONSTER IS STITCHED TOGETHER FROM THE STOLEN LIMBS OF THE DEAD, AND THE RESULT IS A GROTESQUE BEING WHO, REJECTED BY HIS MAKER, SETS OUT ON A JOURNEY TO REEK HIS REVENGE. IN THE MOST FAMOUS GOTHIC HORROR STORY EVER TOLD, SHELLEY CONFRONTS THE LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE, THE NATURE OF HUMAN CRUELTY AND THE PATHWAY TO FORGIVENESS WITH RICH LANGUAGE AND EVOCATIVE IMAGERY.

About the Author

Mary Shelley was born in London on 30 August 1797. Her mother, the celebrated feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, died a few days after her birth.Her father, William Godwin, a well-known anarchist and atheist writer, tutored Mary. In 1814, when she was sixteen, she fell in love with the married poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and they eloped to France. In 1816 the couple travelled to Lake Geneva to spend the summer with the poet Byron. Mary was inspired to write Frankenstein after Byron arranged a ghost story competition during their stay. In the autumn of 1816 Shelleys pregnant wife drowned herself in the Serpentine in Hyde Park and Shelley immediately married Mary. The couple had four children together but only one son survived infancy. They lived in Italy until Percys death in a boating accident in 1822. Mary continued to write until her death in London on 1 February 1851. She is buried in Bournemouth.
