Mary Shelley: Frankenstein - Bantam Classics
Written in 1816 when she was only nineteen, Mary Shelley's novel of "The Modern Prometheus" chillingly dramatized the dangerous potential of life begotten upon a laboratory table.
A summer evening's ghost stories, lonely insomnia in a moonlit Alpine's room, and a runaway imagination - fired by philosophical discussions with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley about science, galvanism, and the origins of life - conspired to produce for Marry Shelley this haunting night specter. By morning, it had become the germ of her Romantic masterpiece, Frankenstein.
