Conceived as part of a literary game among friends in 1816, Frankenstein is today regarded as a classic piece of 19th century literature. This version, though slightly abridged, retains much of the original dialogue and remains true to Shelley's brilliant vision. The book includes a character list (Dramatis Personae) and information about Mary Shelley, and the birth of Frankenstein.
The story begins with the journey of an adventurer, Robert Walton, who saves the life of a man at the North Pole. That man, Victor Frankenstein, tells Walton about his experiments with the creation of life and how he ended up at the North Pole. Through this simple plot device, Shelley was able to deal with serious real-world issues like acceptance, tolerance, and understanding, as well as the universal human need for companionship and love.
