    ITEM#: 12669613

    What happens when Man plays God? Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, a dark parable of science misused was an immediate success on its publication in 1818. Determined to prove he can create life out of nothing, Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant but arrogant scientist, builds a human out of dead flesh. Horrified by his own creation, he abandons the creature?with deadly consequences. Alone, unloved, and hideous to behold, Frankenstein’s monster seeks vengeance on his creator, unleashing a cycle of destruction that ultimately consumes them both. In 1831, Mary Shelley succumbed to conservative pressure and toned down the more radical elements of the work. This edition features the novel in its original, unexpurgated form. The world's greatest works of literature are now available in these beautiful keepsake volumes. Bound in real cloth, and featuring gilt edges and ribbon markers, these beautifully produced books are a wonderful way to build a handsome library of classic literature. These are the essential novels that belong in every home. They'll transport readers to imaginary worlds and provide excitement, entertainment, and enlightenment for years to come. All of these novels feature attractive illustrations and have an unequalled period feel that will grace the library, the bedside table or bureau.
