Publisher's Description

Metáfora sobre la vida, la libertad y el amor, Frankenstein o el moderno Prometeo es una maravillosa fábula con todos los ingredientes de los grandes mitos. En el verano del 1816, Mary Shelley dio vida a quien sería su personaje más famoso, el doctor Frankenstein. La historia es bien conocida: un científico decide crear una criatura con vida propia a la que luego rechaza. Reseña: «El mito de Frankenstein proyecta su espectacular sombra sobre las inmensas bibliotecas de la literatura y el cine occidental.» Alberto Manguel ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Few creatures of horror have seized readers' imaginations and held them for so long as the anguished monster of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The story of Victor Frankenstein's terrible creation and the havoc it caused has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense. Considering the novel's enduring success, it is remarkable that it began merely as a whim of Lord Byron's. "We will each write a story," Byron announced to his next-door neighbors, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and her lover Percy Bysshe Shelley. The friends were summering on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland in 1816, Shelley still unknown as a poet and Byron writing the third canto of Childe Harold. When continued rains kept them confined indoors, all agreed to Byron's proposal.The illustrious poets failed to complete their ghost stories, but Mary Shelley rose supremely to the challenge. With Frankenstein, she succeeded admirably in the task she set for herself: to create a story that, in her own words, "would speak to the mysterious fears of our nature and awaken thrilling horror — one to make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart."

Author Bio

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) fue la única hija de William Godwin y Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, dos pensadores progresistas que se encargaron de introducirla en los ambientes intelectuales. Con apenas catorce años, conoció al joven poeta Percy Bysshe Shelley y huyó con él a Francia. Convivieron por algún tiempo y cuando se suicidó la primera esposa del poeta, se casaron. El matrimonio, que duró ocho años, vivió en distintos países y formó parte del círculo de poetas románticos que frecuentaba lord Byron. A los veintiún años, Mary Shelley publicó su primera novela, Frankenstein o el moderno Prometeo (1818), que obtuvo un gran éxito. También es autora de las novelas Lodore (1835), Falkner (1837) y la futurista El último hombre (1826), que escenifica el fin de la civilización en el siglo XXI.
