Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
Infobase Publishing, 2007 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 150 pages
Perhaps best known for the horror films it has spawned, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, published in 1818 and revised in 1831, is a tale that warns against the "advancements" of modern man and the Industrial Revolution. This still-potent story is given new life with its inclusion in the Bloom's Guides series. A sharp critical overview distills the symbolic essence of the work, while "The Story Behind The Story" section enhances a student's overall comprehension of Frankenstein's historical background.
