Frankenstein: The 1818 Text


Formats & editions


For the bicentennial of its first publication, Mary Shelley's original 1818 text.

2018 marks the bicentennial of Mary Shelley's seminal novel of the scientist whose creation becomes a monster.
This edition is 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 includes a new introduction and suggestions for further reading by author and Shelley expert Charlotte Gordon, literary excerpts and reviews selected by Gordon and a chronology and essay by preeminent Shelley scholar Charles E. Robinson.
