or The Modern Prometheus

Mary Shelley
Edited with an Introduction and Notes by the late M. K. Joseph

A Oxford Paperbacks Publication

Oxford World's Classics

Shelley's suspenseful and intellectually rich gothic tale confronts some of the most important and enduring themes in all of literture--the power of human imagination, the potential hubris of science, the gulf between appearance and essence, the effects of human cruelty, the desire for revenge and the need for forgiveness, and much more.
