    The casebook of Victor Frankenstein : a novel by Peter Ackroyd( Book )
    11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 1,831 libraries worldwide
    This volume merges historical fiction with literary license to create an alternative reality in which Victor Frankenstein, the fictional scientist created by Mary Shelley, who, after studying chemical processes and the decay of living beings, gains an insight into the creation of life and gives life to his own creature. Frankenstein was one of Percy Shelley's (who became Mary Shelley's husband) schoolmates and close friends. In this retelling of the legend, Percy is the one who first gives Frankenstein the idea of creating a monster. Soon, both Frankenstein and the Monster are deeply entwined in the lives of the Shelleys and Lord Byron, becoming the cause of many of the strange occurrences that take place in their lives, including the inspiration for Mary Shelley's book. This book is a fascinating blending of Shelley's original novel, pulling occasional direct quotes from it, and a speculation about the real-life people who were involved in its creation

    Frankenstein : a cultural history by Susan Tyler Hitchcock( Book )
    3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,122 libraries worldwide
    Frankenstein began as the nightmare of an unwed teenage mother in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1816. At a time when the moral universe was shifting and advances in scientific knowledge promised humans dominion over that which had been God's alone, Mary Shelley envisioned a story of human presumption and its misbegotten consequences. Two centuries later, that story is still constantly retold and reinterpreted, from Halloween cartoons to ominous allusions in the public debate, capturing and conveying meaning central to our consciousness today and our concerns for tomorrow. From Victorian musical theater to Boris Karloff with neck bolts, to invocations at the President's Council on Bioethics, the monster and his myth have inspired everyone from cultural critics to comic book addicts. This is a lively and eclectic cultural history, illuminated with dozens of pictures and illustrations, and told with skill and humor. Susan Tyler Hitchcock uses film, literature, history, science, and even punk music to help us understand the meaning of this monster made by man. --Publisher
