Frankenstein - Larger Print Author:Mary Shelley The Face of Frankenstein... "The dull yellow eye opened. The creature breathed hard. Convulsively, it moved its arms and legs..." — So, after two years' work, did Victor Frankenstein, a philosophy student, see the results of his fantastic laboratory experiment. He had discovered the secret of giving life to inanimate matter and had ... more »created -- with its yellow, shriveled skin, watery stare and terrible grin -- a monster that would turn his own life into a waking nightmare.
Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in 1818, when she was only 19 years old, as a simple ghost tale - one, in her own words, "to make the reader dread to look around, to curdle the blood and quicken the beatings of the heart." Its theme, of a man's revenge against a society that rejects him, is still being exploited in novels of today. Frankenstein is also the source of many Hollywood movies. It remains one of the most chilling horror stories of all time.
