Description:

This Norton Critical Edition of Mar Shelley?s gothic masterpiece is based on the 1818 first edition text, published in three volumes by Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mayor, and Jones. Throughout, the editor provides useful explanatory annotation. A map of the region helps readers locate the novel?s many settings. In "Composition and Revision," a special critical section, M. K. Joseph and Anne K. Mellor address the issues surrounding teachers? choice of text. Contemporary perspective is provided in two supporting sections. "Contexts" includes related writings by Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, and John William Polidori. "Nineteenth-Century Responses" gathers six reactions to Frankenstein?s publication from the years 1818 to 1886, including those by Percy Bysshe Shelley and Hugh Reginald Haweis. "Criticism" is a collection of twelve seminal essays that provide a variety of perspectives on Frankenstein by Christopher Small, George Levine, Ellen Moers, Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar, Barbara Johnson, Mary Poovey, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, William Veeder, Anne K. Mellor, Susan Winnett, Marilyn Butler, and Lawrence Lipking.
