    Sinopsis de: "Frankenstein with Illustrations (Horror Classic)"

    The timeless horror classic Frankenstein by Mary Shelley with Illustrations by Mary Shelley is back with Illustrations!Examining in Ingolstadt, a city in the Free State of Bavaria, in the Federal Republic of Germany, an ambitious scientist Victor Frankenstein finds the mystery of life and makes a hideous creature with intelligence, from whom he pulls back with sickening dread... He keeps his making of the creature a mystery, feeling remorseful and embarrased as he understands that he is so powerless to keep the beast from destroying his life and the lives of others...Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque but sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition of the novel was published anonymously in London in 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823. Shelley travelled through Europe in 1814, journeying along the River Rhine in Germany with a stop in Gernsheim which is just 10 miles away from Frankenstein Castle, where, two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments. Later, she travelled in the region of Geneva (Switzerland)—where much of the story takes place—and the topic of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her lover and future husband, Percy Shelley. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for days, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the novel's story. Frankenstein is infused with elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement. At the same time, it is an early example of science fiction. Brian Aldiss has argued that it should be considered the first true science fiction story because, in contrast to previous stories with fantastical elements resembling those of later science fiction, the central character "makes a deliberate decision" and "turns to modern experiments in the laboratory" to achieve fantastic results. It has had a considerable influence in literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories, films and plays.Since the novel's publication, the name "Frankenstein" has often been used to refer to the monster itself. This usage is sometimes considered erroneous, but usage commentators regard it as well-established and acceptable. In the novel, the monster is identified by words such as "creature", "monster", "demon", "wretch," "abortion," and "it". Speaking to Victor Frankenstein, the wretch refers to himself as "the Adam of your labours", and elsewhere as someone who "would have [been] your Adam", but is instead "your fallen angel" (which ties to Lucifer in Paradise Lost, which the monster reads, and relates to the "modern" Prometheus of the book's subtitle). -Wikipedia-

    Shelley, Mary

    Mary Shelley (1797-1851) fue una mujer libre, de inteligencia brillante y una gran sensibilidad. Con tan solo 20 años ya se había convertido en una escritora reconocida. Era hija de Mary Wollstonecraft, filósofa y escritora, y de William Godwin, filósofo radical, dos célebres personalidades del mundo intelectual de finales del siglo XVIII. Conoció a Percy Bysshe Shelley en 1814, y los ocho años que duró su relación fueron intensos y difíciles, llenos de creatividad pero también de tensiones emocionales. Tuvieron cuatro hijos e hijas del que solo sobrevivió el último. Escribió novelas, relatos breves y artículos, obras de teatro, libros de viajes, ensayos y biografías literarias donde reflejaba sus ideas sobre filosofía de la historia, criticaba las instituciones dominadas por los hombres, defendía la relevancia política de las mujeres y subrayaba la importancia de la vida cotidiana y doméstica en la historia política. Al igual que su madre, luchó para ser independiente y consiguió vivir de su trabajo y mantener a su hijo.
