Book summary

Mary Shelley?s Frankenstein is remembered as a novel valuable in itself and prophetic of an intellectual world to come. It is seen as depicting a Prometheanism that is still with us. In this text noted critics examine subjects surrounding the novel such as creation as catastrophe, Frankenstein as the negative Oedipus, and a piece by Joyce Carol Oates on Frankenstein?s fallen angel.

The title, Mary Wollsonecraft Shelleys Frankenstein, part of Chelsea House Publishers Modern Critical Interpretations series, presents the most important 20th-century criticism on Mary Wollsonecraft Shelleys Frankenstein through extracts of critical essays by well-known literary critics. This collection of criticism also features a short biography on Mary Wollsonecraft Shelley, a chronology of the authors life, and an introductory essay written by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University.
