Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
Infobase Publishing, 2007 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 256 pages
Perhaps best recognized for the horror films it has spawned, Frankenstein, written by 19-year-old Mary Shelley, was first published in 1818. Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus, warns against irresponsible science, technology, and parenting, and made readers reconsider who the world's monsters really are and how society contributes to creating them. Whether for research or general interest, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations furnishes students with a collection of the most insightful critical essays available on this Gothic thriller, selected from a variety of literary sources. Completely updated and incorporating at least 50 percent new material, this convenient study guide—with chronology, contributor biographical information, and bibliography—is ideal for those working on thematic papers.
