The Penguin English Library Edition of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

'Never did I behold a vision so horrible as his face, of such loathsome, yet appalling hideousness'

A twisted, upside-down creation myth, Mary Shelley's chilling Gothic tale lays bare the dark side of science, and the horror within us all. It tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, who plunders graveyards to create a new being from the bodies of the dead - but whose botched creature causes nothing but murder and destruction. Written after a nightmare when its author was only eighteen, Frankenstein gave birth to the modern science fiction novel.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Review:

"The select bibliography by M.K. Joseph is of benefit to our students."--Dr. Darlene J. Alberts, Ohio Dominican College "This has proved ideal for my Freshman class...compact, inexpensive, clearly printed with margins big enough to scribble in!"--Hilary Kaplan, University of California and Los Angeles "The best general edition of this classic text in terms of text, notes, and general design."--Barry M. Katz, Stanford University "Indispensable for the study of Shelley's Frankenstein."--Eric Rabkin, University of Michigan "Marilyn Butlers introduction was comprehensive and informative and provided a valuable background for my general intro to lit students. The inclusion of the apprndices was also useful and thought-provoking."--Stephanie Wardrop, Colorado State University

From the Publisher:

Christopher Lee is one of the world's most iconic horror and fantasy actors - coming to prominence with the 1957 film `The Curse of Frankenstein' in which he played Frankenstein's monster. This began a long association with the film studio Hammer - with whom he made a further eleven films including the Transylvanian bloodsucker himself in the 1958 `Dracula', Kharis in `The Mummy' (1959), Sir Henry Baskerville in `The Hound of the Baskervilles' (1959) and Rasputin in `Rasputin, the Mad Monk' (1966). He also starred in two Denis Wheatley films `The Devil Rides Out (1967) and `To the Devil a Daughter' (1976).

Most recently, he has starred in `The Colour of Magic' (2008) `The Golden Compass' (2007), `Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' (2005) & `Star Wars: Attack of the Clones' (2002) and as Saruman in the recent `The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
