Frankenstein , by Mary S (inner includes riveting 2page essay on Shelley 2 tapes)

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

( full title is " Frankenstein " {the original Regency version by Mary Shelley} , a part-narrated / part-dramatized audiobook, with : Daniel Philpott voicing Frankenstein the Scientist ; Jonathan Oliver voicing The Daemon {the creation} ; and, Chris Larkin voicing Walton )

As the inner sleeve shows, Mary Shelley, daughter of radical feminist Mary Wollstencraft and mistress - later wife - to legendary poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, was inspired to write "Frankenstein", while with a group of fellow young creative people, sitting by the side of a lightning-afflicted-Lake Geneva, on a hot June night, in 1816 ; barely a year, after the fields of Waterloo had turned ankle-deep, with the freshly-spilt blood of slain soldiers.

The subject they discussed was "Galvanism", the most fascinating topic to the mind of every intellectual in Europe, at the time. It means the medical use of electric current, and in particular, the possibility of provoking the very spark of life by its means ...

About the Audiobook :-
The gothic tale of "Frankenstein", and his construction of a human being which runs amok has, with the help of numerous films, become one of the most vivid horror stories.

But Shelley's original novel, dealt more sympathetically with "the daemon", showing how an initially-beneficent creature is hammered into a daemon by the way he is treated.

Her ideas, and her dramatic but poignant story, is brought to life in this sound dramatization.
