About this product
- DescriptionGenerations have thrilled to Mary Shelley's 1818 vel, the suspenseful tale of a well-intentioned doctor who dares to play God and the misbegotten monster who wreaks a savage revenge on his creator. Combining elements of Gothic vels and Romantic sensibilities, Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus poses enduring questions about ambition, responsibility, the quest for scientific discovery and immortality, and the fate of social outcasts. Acclaimed as both the first modern horror vel and the first science-fiction vel, the story has inspired countless writers and artists as well as numerous film, theatrical, and television interpretations. Newly designed and reset, this handsome hardbound edition reprints all of Ni Carbe's starkly beautiful pen-and-ink drawings and endpieces from one of the earliest illustrated editions of Frankenstein. Bonus images include five full-color paintings created by Carbe, a ted Walt Disney artist, in the 1980s. The artist's daughter, Elizabeth Carbe, provides a new Foreword.
- Author BiographyDaughter of political philosopher William Godwin and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley (1797-1851) edited the works of her husband, Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, and is best known as the author of Frankenstein.
