Summary
Emerging from the shadow of popular reproductions, Frankenstein's importance in debates about gender, culture and politics has been dramatically affected by recent developments in criticism and theory. This volume collects the most significant contemporary work on the novel from Marxist, Psychoanalytic, Historicist, Feminist, Poststructuralist and Postcolonialist perspectives. The collection reflects the way that monstrosity in its literary, historical and philosophical context raises crucial questions for modern issues of sexuality, class, science, race, language and identity. It includes an Introduction, brief explanatory notes on the essays and a selective guide to further reading
