"This revision of a widely adopted critical edition presents the 1831 text of Mary Shelley's English Romantic novel along with critical essays that read Frankenstein from five contemporary critical perspectives. A sixth essay by Fred Botting demonstrates how several critical perspectives can be combined." "Each critical essay is accompanied by an introduction to the critical perspective and by a bibliography that promotes further exploration of that approach. The text and essays are complemented by introductions to biographical and historical contexts of Frankenstein and to its critical history and by a glossary of critical and theoretical terms."--Jacket.
