Product Description

Gorgeous Collector’s Edition of the masterpiece from the gothic pen of Mary Shelley. Victor Frankenstein is a man of science obsessed with the idea of creating life. So much so, that he creates a giant, human-like being out of a patchwork of corpses.

However, on achieving his miracle, Frankenstein finds himself horrified by his repulsive creation. His decision to abandon the monster leads to devastating consequences as, rejected and alone, it becomes determined to wreak its vengeance. Enraged not only at Frankenstein’s betrayal, but also his refusal to give him a bride, the monster hunts down those Frankenstein holds dear, leaving his creator with no choice but to try desperately to destroy the horror he brought forth.

This new version includes two companion pieces, ‘Transformation’, and ‘The Mortal Immortal’, as well as Aeschylus’ original Prometheus Bound. Flame Tree Collector’s Editions present the foundations of speculative fiction, authors without whom the imaginative literature of the twentieth century would not exist, bringing the best and most influential writers into a striking and collectable library.

Each book features a new introduction, a short biography and a glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
