This new edition of Mary Shelley's classic novel uses the 1818 text, which is a mocking expose of leaders and achievers who leave desolation in their wake, showing mankind its choice - to live co-operatively or to die of selfishness. It is also a black comedy, and harder and wittier than the1831 version with which we are more familiar.Drawing on new research, Marilyn Butler examines the novel in the context of the radical sciences, which were developing among much controversy in the years following the Napoleonic Wars, and shows how Frankenstein's experiment relates to a contemporary debate between the champions of materialistscience and of received religion.… (més)

Still one of my favorite novels. Stunning! ( )

This year, I plan to read at least fifty (50) classic books in literature.
I picked Frankenstein because I read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein last year, and it was awesome. While reading the original, I realize that Shelley's original version is even better. I will reread it sometime later. ( )

I'm downgrading this from three stars to two (I think when I originally added it years ago, years distant from having last read it, I defaulted to three for some reason). A lot of it is a real dang snooze. I even like the sort of flowery old-timey language that this book is written in, but the story itself is just real sluggish.

There are of course parts that are lovely. I like when the monster waxes philosophical (the ending is lovely, for example). I like learning about how the monster learned how to begin to transcend brute monsterhood. But then there are things like the family-in-exile back story subplot for the DeLaceys that made little sense to me.

Generally, a lot of slog for a little bit of pay-off. ( )

I previously read the final 1831 edition of "Frankenstein" and wasn't all that impressed. I'm glad I've now finally read the 1818 version because it's far superior. It feels much more raw and powerful and, most importantly, not sanitized. In her revisions to the text in 1831 Shelley intentionally cleaned up certain aspects that might make her family look disreputable and also softened the character of Frankenstein himself. The original Victor possesses free will and the capability of making moral choices, even though he chooses not to make them. In the revision he is merely a victim of fate, unable to control his own destiny. This makes for a much less interesting story. If you can only read one text of this classic make it this one, penned by Mary Shelley as she originally intended in 1818. You won't be disappointed. ( )

Read for my OU course.

This is really not my thing. Such drama! Such self-involvement! Such endless going over the same emotional ground. ( )
