About this Item

352 pages. Blind to the pitfalls of romance, Emma plays matchmaker for her friend Harriet. Yet she is unprepared to discover that fate has other plans for Harriet. . . as well as for Emma herself. A Jane Austen favorite, Emma is an intriguiging tale of the perils that come with interfering with matters of the heart. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was one of the most significant novelists of nineteenth-century English literature. A member of the landed gentry, she lived primarily in quiet seclusion among a tight-knit circle of family and friends until her untimely death from Addisons disease at the age of 41. Although sales of her works were steady, she did not meet with great commercial or critical success in her lifetime. Academic interest surged in the twentieth century, and her works today enjoy continued popularity in robust book sales and in motion picture and television adaptations. Notable works include Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1815). Northanger Abbey (1818) and Persuasion (1818) were published posthumously. Ellen K. Gregory earned her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Arizona and her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Iowas Writers Workshop. She has taught English classes on an adjunct basis at Brigham Young University and Utah State University. A recipient of a QuickFunds grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, she has had work accepted by Segullah, The Wasatch Journal, Literary Mama, BYU Studies, The Ensign, and other publications. She currently resides with her husband and five children in southeastern Idaho. Additional titles by this publisher may be found at www. finisterrabooks. com. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title

Synopsis:

A new scientific dawn is ushered in as Dr. Frankenstein welcomes his undead creation to life. Yet his triumph turns to dread as he recognizes that he has unleashed a being with passions and abilities far beyond his power to restrain. Created on a dare, Mary Shelley's debut novel Frankenstein remains a bedrock forerunner of the science fiction genre and a cautionary tale in a world of accelerating scientific advance. This edition of Mary Shelley's classic is accompanied by a foreword written by Marisa Swanson. Additional titles by this publisher are available at www.finisterrabooks.com.

About the Author:

Mary Shelley (1797-1851), the only daughter of writers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, is the critically acclaimed author of Frankenstein, Valperga, and The Last Man, in addition to many other works. Mary Shelley s writings reflect and were influenced by a number of literary traditions including Gothic and Romantic ideals, and Frankenstein is widely regarded as the first modern work of science fiction. Today s scholarship of Mary Shelley s writings reveal her to be a political radical, as demonstrated though recurring themes of cooperation and sympathy, particularly among women, in her work, which are in direct conflict with the individual Romantic ideals of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
