Perhaps best known for the horror films it has spawned, Mary Shelley's ""Frankenstein"", published in 1818 and revised in 1831, is a tale that warns against the ""advancements"" of modern man and the Industrial Revolution. This still-potent story is given new life with this latest inclusion to the ""Bloom's Guides"" series. A sharp critical overview distills the symbolic essence of the work, while ""The Story Behind The Story"" section enhances a student's overall comprehension of Frankenstein's historical background.

Review quote

"This is the type of novel that is open to interpretation and students will gain a better understanding from reading all of the discussion. Doctorow is quoted in several chapters. Students looking for criticism and analysis of literary works will find it easy to use this title rather than searching endlessly for the Journals in which these articles may have originally appeared. A valuable resource for literature collections."
