Mit Frankenstein hat Mary Shelley 1818 eine mythische Gestalt erschaffen, die im Lauf des 20. Jahrhunderts durch teilweise sehr freie Verfilmungen eine ungeheure Popularität erlangt hat. Während der Name nun für alle möglichen Arten von Monstern steht, erzählt Shelley die phantastische Geschichte des Victor Frankenstein, der – an der Universität Ingolstadt – ein künstliches Wesen erschafft, das er nicht beherrschen kann. Das Monster sehnt sich nach Liebe und Gemeinschaft, bringt aber allen, die ihm zu nahe kommen, den Tod.

For the bicentennial of its first publication, Mary Shelley’s original 1818 text, introduced by National Book Critics Circle award-winner Charlotte Gordon. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read 2018 marks the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s seminal novel. For the first time, Penguin Classics will publish the original 1818 text, which preserves the hard-hitting and politically-charged aspects of Shelley’s original writing, as well as her unflinching wit and strong female voice. This edition also emphasizes Shelley’s relationship with her mother—trailblazing feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who penned A Vindication of the Rights of Woman—and demonstrates her commitment to carrying forward her mother’s ideals, placing her in the context of a feminist legacy rather than the sole female in the company of male poets, including Percy Shelley and Lord Byron. This edition includes a new introduction and suggestions for further reading by National Book Critics Circle award-winner and Shelley expert Charlotte Gordon, literary excerpts and reviews selected by Gordon, and a chronology and essay by preeminent Shelley scholar Charles E. Robinson. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
