KurzbeschreibungMary Shelley's poignant exploration of the true depths of human ambition has had a profound effect on readers since its conception in 1816. When scientist Victor Frankenstein forms a creature from the body parts of corpses, thus shattering the perceived limits of scientific understanding, the consequences are devastating. As Frankenstein becomes disgusted with his experiment, he thwarts the creature's desire for a companion, and what ensues is singularly chilling.
KlappentextMary Shelley's poignant exploration of the true depths of ambition and humanity has had a profound effect on readers since its conception in 1816. When scientist Victor Frankenstein forms a creature from the body parts of corpses, thus shattering the perceived limits of scientific understanding, the consequences are devastating on both a personal and a wider level. Our natural sympathies are challenged as Frankenstein becomes disgusted with his creation, who, in turn, begins to suffer from an acute sense of loneliness. When his desire for a companion is thwarted, he vows to take revenge upon Frankenstein. What ensues is singularly chilling in this gothic classic, which has spawned numerous film and theatre interpretations.
Biografie (Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley)Mary Shelley (1797-1851) begann schon als Kind Gedichte und Romane zu verfassen. Noch keine 17 Jahre alt, brannte sie mit dem jungen Dichter Percy Shelley durch und bereiste Europa. Im Jahr ihrer Hochzeit 1816 verbrachten beide den Sommer mit Lord Byron am Genfer See, wo sie Ideen für Schauergeschichten sammelten. Schon zwei Jahre später veröffentlichte Shelley ihren Frankenstein, den Vater aller Gruselromane, dessen Erfolg es ihr ermöglichte, fortan als angesehene Schriftstellerin zu leben.
