REVIEW: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Posted October 12, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

   Frankensteinby Mary ShelleyMy Copy: Rented TextbookRating: This “Norton Critical Edition” of “Frankenstein” contains the 1818 first edition text. Only the obvious typographical errors have been corrected. The book also includes writings by Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and John William Polidori, enabling the reader to place the novel in its historical context.

REVIEW: I know it’s a classic and usually as a rule of thumb for me I don’t touch anything that is a “classic”. To me classic equals boring. If it had not been a required read for my World Lit class I would have thrown the […]
