Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is considered not only the first example of modern science fiction, but even today, more than two hundred years later, the greatest exemplar of the genre.


Frankenstein is indeed a great story considered on many levels, but to go deeply into the text, it is necessary to consider the context in which it was written, and the philosophies that it draws upon to make its controversial point!  These key themes, including the nature of the Romantic movement, are often overlooked in treatments of the novel.


This is an interactive eTextbook containing both the complete text of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and essays and insights into key themes raised by the landmark book.


Among the great features of the interactive eText are links to Onboard Learning Resources, and the ability to make and share annotated notes with other students of Shelley as you read.
