Synopsis
This story was injected with life starting in 1816, a peculiar year that lacked a summer. It took its first breath as part of a game meant to pass the time for a group of college-aged friends until the sun would return. The story is such a powerful one that it erupted almost completely formed out of the then 18-year-old author from a dream and has inspired many ever since she scribbled it down in journals and put it in the hands of a publisher. Classic Appreciation Press is the creation of a marketing student in Denver, Colorado for the purposes of having a small company in which he can apply and experiment with principles discovered or learned through the course of his studies. All proceeds go to tuition and other costs associated with education.
Amazon.com Review
Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by such eminent literary critics as Harold Bloom, seems hardly to need a recommendation. If you haven't read it recently, though, you may not remember the sweeping force of the prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelgänger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. As fantasy writer Jane Yolen writes of this (the reviewer's favorite) edition, "The strong black and whites of the main text [illustrations] are dark and brooding, with unremitting shadows and stark contrasts. But the central conversation with the monster--who owes nothing to the overused movie image … but is rather the novel's charnel-house composite--is where [Barry] Moser's illustrations show their greatest power ... The viewer can all but smell the powerful stench of the monster's breath as its words spill out across the page. Strong book-making for one of the world's strongest and most remarkable books." Includes an illuminating afterword by Joyce Carol Oates.
