A scientist oversteps the bounds of conscience and brings to life a tortured creation A young adventurer succumbs to the night world of a diabolic count A man of medicine explores his darker side only to fall prey to it They are legendary tales that have held readers spellbound for more than a century The titles alone i Frankenstein Dracula i and i Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde i have become part of a universal language that serves to put a monster s face on the good and evil duality of our very human nature And the authors Mary Shelley Bram Stoker and Robert Louis Stevenson equally mythic are still possessed of as inventive and subversive power that can shake a reader to this day with something far more profound than fear They gave root to the modern horror novel and like the creatures they invented they ve achieved immortality, Conceived as part of a literary game among friends in Mary Shelley s i Frankenstein i is today regarded as a classic piece of th century literature The story begins with the journey of an adventurer Robert Walton who saves the life of a man at the North Pole That man Victor Frankenstein tells Walton about his experiments with the creation of life and how he ended up at the North Pole Through this simple plot device Shelley was able to deal with serious real world issues like acceptance tolerance and understanding as well as the universal human need for companionship and love The novel of course inspired a host of films from the classic starring Boris Karloff to i Andy Warhol s Frankenstein i and more recently a series of novels by Dean Koontz This version though slightly abridged retains much of the original dialogue and remains true to Shelley s brilliant vision, Valperga the novel Mary Shelley wrote after Frankenstein is based on the life of Castruccio Castracani Prince of Lucca A brilliant soldier and cruel tyrant he successfully commanded Ghibelline forces in Tuscany against the Guelphs Woven into the story of this factional conflict are the tragic destinies of two heroines fictional creations of the author Ethanasia Countess of Valperga finds herself increasingly torn between loyalty to her Guelph roots and her lifelong affection for Castruccio Beatrice whom the author s father William Godwin described as the jewel of the book is a heretical Paterin with whom Castruccio falls in love only to abandon This meticulously researched historical novel combines a narrative of suspense with a remarkable reconstruction of manners in the Middle Ages Set in the period of Dante s lifetime it is also suffused with a poetic spirit which evokes the beauties of Italy s physical environment and points to the melancholy inevitability of change This edition provides a clear account of the circumstances in which Valperga was composed and published, DRACULA is an epistolary novel by Irish author Bram Stoker featuring as its primary antagonist the vampire Count Dracula It was st published as a hardcover in by Archibald Constable amp Co Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature horror fiction the gothic novel amp invasion literature Structurally it s an epistolary novel told as a series of letters diary entries ships logs etc Literary critics have examined many themes in the novel such as the role of women in Victorian culture conventional amp conservative sexuality immigration colonialism folklore amp postcolonialism Altho Stoker didn t invent the vampire the novel s influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical film amp tv interpretations since its publication br FRANKENSTEIN or The Modern Prometheus is a novel about a failed artificial life experiment that s produced a monster written by Mary Shelley She started writing the story when she was It was published when she was The st edition was published anonymously in London in Shelley s name appears on the nd edition published in France in She d travelled the region in which the story takes place The topics of galvanism amp other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions particularly her future husband Percy Bysshe Shelley The storyline was taken from a dream She was talking with three writer colleagues Percy Bysshe Shelley Lord Byron amp John Polidori They decided they would have a competition to see who could write the best horror story After thinking for weeks about what her storyline could be she dreamt about a scientist who created life amp was horrified by what he d made Then Frankenstein was written Frankenstein is infused with some elements of the Gothic novel amp the Romantic movement amp is also considered to be an early example of sf Brian Aldiss has argued it should be considered the st true sf story because unlike in previous stories with fantastical elements resembling those of later sf the central character makes a deliberate decision amp turns to modern experiments in the laboratory to achieve fantastic results The story is partially based on Giovanni Aldini s electrical experiments on dead amp living animals amp was also a warning against the expansion of modern man in the Industrial Revolution alluded to in its subtitle The Modern Prometheus It s had a considerable influence across literature amp popular culture amp spawned a complete genre of horror stories amp films
