  • em Frankenstein was Mary Shelley s immensely powerful contribution to the ghost stories which she, Percy Shelley, and Byron wrote one wet summer in Switzerland Its protagonist is a young student of natural philosophy, who learns the secret of imparting life to a creature constructed from relics of the dead, with horrific consequences Frankenstein confronts some of the most feared innovations of evolutionism topics such as degeneracy, hereditary disease, and mankind s status as a species of animal The text used here is from the 1818 edition, which is a mocking expos of leaders and achievers who leave desolation in their wake, showing mankind its choice to live cooperatively or to die of selfishness It is also a black comedy, and harder and wittier than the 1831 version with which we are familiar Drawing on new research, Marilyn Butler examines the novel in the context of the radical sciences, which were developing among much controversy in the years following the Napoleonic Wars, and shows how Frankenstein s experiment relates to a contemporary debate between the champions of materialist science and of received religion ABOUT THE SERIES For over 100 years Oxford World s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe Each affordable volume reflects Oxford s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up to date bibliographies for further study, and much .

    1. Qu m s se puede decir a estas alturas sobre esta novela visionaria Por mi parte, me limitar a recomendarla sin reservas como bien ha dicho otra lectora, dar m s de una sorpresa a quien s lo conozca la historia por su versi n popular y a alabar esta edici n Por poco m s de lo que cuesta un peri dico, te llevas a casa un texto muy cuidado, con notas tiles y una interesante introducci n sobre algunas de las cuestiones cient ficas y pol ticas presentes en la novela.


    2. This is a great book A first tale of science fiction written at the beginning of the 18th century At first, the author was unknown, leading many readers to believe that the author was male due to the novel s pace, actions and shift in feelings and tone.Throughout the novel one cannot but feel compassion for Victor Frankenstein and his nemesis, his own hideous creation, the monster How can the formidable science of man, with all its gathered knowledge and rational thinking tantamount to the destr [...]


    3. El libro en si no precisa puntuaci n, es un gran cl sico.La edici n, al contrario que otros gratuitos de Amaz n, est bien hecha, sin grandes problemas de conversi n, buena tipograf a, etc.Recomendado.


    4. Un buen libro, sin lugar a dudas De lectura f cil y r pida La pena es la edici n tan mala, con errores garrafales gram ticos y de ortograf a Se deber an cuidar m s estas cosas Bueno, mas que cuidar, es algo indispensable, publicar un libro sin errores.


    5. S , s , es un gran cl sico y su base argumental es muy original, y todo lo que quieras, pero es un libro francamente aburrido, que ha envejecido muy mal.Las ideas son magn ficas el monstruo creado y abandonado a su suerte por la irresponsabilidad del hombre , pero la narraci n se hace muy repetitiva y queda lastrada por lo peor de la literatura del XVIII XIX que tambi n lo hubo largas descripciones superfluas, la cr nica de un viaje que no aporta nada a la tramaYo lo comparar a con un collar, cu [...]


    6. Cumple a la perfecci n con la descripci n aportada por el vendedor Libro perfecto para cualquier biblioteca infantil y Juvenil Apropiado tambi n para jueves adultos.


    7. Un libro escrito con un estilo que lo hace una delicia de lectura En cuanto a la historia en s , poco tiene que ver con las cutres pel culas de serie B El monstruo de Frankenstein es un pobre diablo atormentado por la soledad a la que le condena su terror fico aspecto El doctor Frankestein es la personificaci n de los ideales del Romanticismo, como dice el capit n Walton un hombre superior.


    8. Es un libro bastante intenso Pero es entretenido y se lee bastante bien Si te gusta leer sobre misterios, te encantar Querr s saberlo todo Adem s, no tiene nada que ver con la pel cula.
