The Artisan Devereaux Edition of Mary Shelley’s timeless account of Dr. Frankenstein creating, from pieces of dead bodies, a hideous monster of pure evil, remains more meaningful and prophetic today than when it was conceived two centuries ago.
In an era when genetic manipulation, and new forms of life are daily being experimented with by vast corporations and governments around the globe, the possibility of unleashing something malignant upon the environment—only to cause irreparable damage—has never been greater.
