Obsessed by creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the human material to fashion a new being, a being he then shocks into life by electricity. Horrified by the realisation of what he has done he rejects the craeture and flees into the night. However, his botched creature, rejected by Frankenstein and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy his maker and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelley's chilling gothic tale was conceived when she was only eighteen, living with her lover Percy Shelley near Byron's villa on Lake Geneva. It would become one the world's most famous works of horror fiction, and remains a devastating exploration of the limits of human creativity.
The author Mary Shelley was born in 1797, the only daughter of writers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. In 1814 she eloped with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, whom she married in 1816. She is best remembered as the author of Frankenstein, but she wrote several other works, including Valperga and The Last Man. She died in 1851.
