About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents an ideal introductory guide to Frankenstein, with examples of close textual analysis, for secondary and undergraduate students who are studying this popular text for the first time. It features close textual analysis and encourages readers to develop their own analytical skills. It provides an account of Shelley's life, as well as discussion of historical and literary contexts, and a sample of critical views. This study focuses on how Frankenstein works: how the story is told and why it is so rich and gripping. Part I uses carefully selected short extracts for close textual analysis, while Part II examines Shelley's life, the historical and literary contexts of the vel, and offers a sample of key criticism.
