The best-selling student edition on the market, now available in a Second Edition. Almost two centuries after its publication, Frankenstein remains an indisputably classic text and Mary Shelleya€™s finest work. This extensively revised Norton Critical Edition includes new texts and illustrative materials that convey the enduring global conversation about Frankenstein and its author. The text is that of the 1818 first edition, published in three volumes by Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, and Jones. It is accompanied by an expansive new preface, explanatory annotations, a map of Geneva and its environs, and seven illustrations, five of them new to the Second Edition. Context is provided in three supporting sections: a€œCircumstance, Influence, Composition, Revision, a€ a€œReception, Impact, Adaptation, a€ and a€œSources, Influences, Analogues.a€ Among the Second Editiona€™s new inclusions are historical-cultural studies by Susan Tyler Hitchcock, William St. Clair, and Elizabeth Young; Chris Baldrick on the novela€™s reception; and David Pirie on the novela€™s many film adaptations. Related excerpts from the Bible and from John Miltona€™s Paradise Lost are now included, as is Charles Lamba€™s poem a€œThe Old Familiar Faces.a€ a€œCriticisma€ collects sixteen major interpretations of Frankenstein, nine of them new to the Second Edition.
