About the book:

Mary Shelley's first novel has established itself as one of modernity's most compelling and ominous myths. Frankenstein poignantly captures the spirit of the early 1800s as an age of transition tragically divided between scientific progress and religious conservatism, revolutionary reform and conformist reaction.This "Guide" encapsulates the most important critical reactions to a novel that straddles the realms of both "high" literature and popular culture. The selections shed light on "Frankenstein"'s historical and socio-political relevance, its innovative representations of science, gender, and identity, as well as its problematic cultural location between academic critique and creative production. Ranging from the first reviews in 1818 to postmodern readings of the mid-1990s, the "Guide" illuminates one of British literature's most spectacular novels.
