Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley( Recording )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was the first horror novel, shocking and intriguing those who read it at the time of its composition. Like her hero, Victor Frankenstein, Shelley transgresses the boundary between life and death. Victor Frankenstein stitches together a monster out of charnel parts and brings him to life, exposing him to a world that hates and fears him, and which he learns to hate in return. The monster begs his creator to make him a bride, in order that he should not be completely alone in the world. The monster vows vengeance at Frankenstein's refusal, and carries it out in a dreadful way. But Shelley does not make the monster wholly monstrous -- rather, hers is a monster with a conscience, albeit one exercised far too late
