HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘The rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open…’

Victor Frankenstein’s monster is stitched together from the limbs of the dead, taken from ‘the dissecting room and the slaughter-house’. The result is a grotesque being who, rejected by his maker and starved of human companionship, sets out on a journey to seek his revenge. In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness.

Begun when Mary Shelley was only eighteen years old and published two years later, this chilling tale of a young scientist’s desire to create life – and the consequences of that creation – still resonate today.

“Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus”

Oh the loneliness portrayed in this classic is heart breaking. One feels anger at Victor, creator of a being crudely constructed from body parts of corpses. It can be a cruel, cruel world.
