Frankenstein بقلم Mary Shelley ... "I had desired it with an ardour but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart."Consumed by the desire to discover the secret of life, Victor Frankenstein, a man with unremitting curiosity and hunger for knowledge, infuses a spark of life into the inanimate body created from stolen body parts. But as the dull yellow eyes of the creature open, Victor is chilled to the marrow. Appalled by his work, he runs away. What happens as his creation, the monster, turns into a murderer, seeking out his creator, demanding companionship?Will Victor Frankenstein create another monster?An instant bestseller, Mary Shelleys Frankenstein explores how destructive the thirst for knowledge can be. With elements of a true Gothic novel, it is considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction.

نبذة عن الكاتب

Mary Shelley Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley (1797-1851), the daughter of pioneering thinkers Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, eloped with the poet Percy Shelley at the age of sixteen. Three years later, during a wet summer on Lake Geneva, Shelley famously wrote her masterpiece, Frankenstein. The years of her marriage were blighted by the deaths of three of her four children, and further tragedy followed in 1822, when Percy Shelley drowned in Italy. Following his death, Mary Shelley returned to England and continued to travel and write until her own death at the age of fifty-three.
