Promotional Information

'Direct and engaging in style, this comprehensive study will appeal to new students of Frankenstein, and will also be useful to the Shelley specialist.' - Mike Edwards, formerly Head of Humanities, Crosskeys College, UK 'The book comprises an intrinsic analysis of the novel itself and an extrinsic account of its context and critics. Throughout, Marsh's method is close reading: quoting a substantial passage to illustrate each of his points and then commenting oon it in detail. This approach, illuminating in itself, also sets a good example for students...It would help an instructor preparing to teach the novel for the first time, not least because of the excellent essay questions that end most chapters.' - D. L. Macdonald, Professor of English, University of Calgary, Canada, New Books Online 19
