Part of the Legend Classics series The young scientist Victor Frankenstein experiments with alchemy to fulfil his greatest ambition: to create life. Once he succeeds and his creature takes its first breath, he realises he has made a monster and abandons it. The creature, shunned by the world and filled with rage, decides to follow its master. One of the most famous horror novels of all time and considered by many to be the first science-fiction novel, Shelley’s masterpiece has entertained and horrified its readers for 200 years.

Author Biography

Mary Shelley was born in 1797, the only daughter of William Godwin the philosopher and writer and Mary Wollstonecraft, the radical author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Her mother died a few days after her birth. In 1814 she left England with Percy Bysshe Shelley, and married him in 1816 on the death of his wife. She returned to England in 1823 after her husband's death. Shelley is best remembered as the author of Frankenstein, but she wrote several other works including novels, biographies and short stories. She died in 1851.
