Written by Mary Shelley in response to a challenge from friends when she was only eighteen years old, Frankenstein is a thrilling masterpiece about a man whose hunger to create life drives him to build a monster, and ultimately results in his own ruin. A deeply thoughtful study of the ethical dilemmas that knowledge can bring to humankind, Frankenstein also provides a portrait of modern science in Europe almost two centuries ago—a time when major discoveries were being made one after another, and when it seemed that anything was possible.
