FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley is the foundational text of both the horror and science fiction genres, a classic that has been read, discussed, and adapted in every medium for going on 200 years.
Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, discovers the secret to endowing inanimate flesh with life. Without thinking of the repercussions, he throws himself into realizing his ambition, only to recoil in terror at what he has created. Rejected by his creator and humanity, Frankenstein’s monster is driven by the primal desire to inspire love, or if to be cast aside, to inspire fear.
Containing both the common 1831 revised edition and the author’s original 1818 text of FRANKENSTEIN, this Top Five Classics edition also features Lynd Ward’s hauntingly beautiful, moody, and subtly erotic woodcut illustrations from his 1934 edition.
