Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus (Roads Classics)

Mary Shelley

PAPERBACK

November 20, 2014

Few narratives can rival the way in which Shelleys gothic masterpiece captures the human imagination. The enduring appeal of the tale created its own monster in the form of myriad gory adaptations and whimsical pastiches of the work. These can lead one to forget the powerful, en­grossing and thought-provoking nature of the original. In Frankenstein, the creature that has become the grotesque caricature we all know so well raises pertinent questions about science and responsibility that are more relevant today than ever before.

About the Cover: In what could be the opening or closing arctic scenes, the solitary figure of Frankensteins creation is the picture of loneliness, in his fruitless search for love and peace.
