Reviews

[The editors's] expertise speaks to Frankenstein's enduring message about existential stakes -- and the potentially alarming societal consequences likely to devolve from the unfettered march of science and technology. Concerns about unintended consequences were urgent at the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the Nuclear Age, and they are, if anything, more urgent now.

--Los Angeles Review of Books

The critical essays accompanying the text are eclectic, cross-disciplinary, and incisive....authoritative, yet accessible, and firmly situates both Shelley and her novel in relation to our contemporary tech-oriented age.

--Lawfare

This newly annotated edition of the classic wrests the text from English majors and hands it to STEMers, but also brings the concerns of literature--moral weight, literary device, creativity--to readers at risk of underestimating their importance.
