Catching up with the Classics
Every now and again I get a hankering to read a classic novel. Doing this I often find that the story isn't necessarily as we recollect it from movies or hearsay.
Classic novels can be hard-going because of the style of language used and often unusual words which have different meanings in this modern age. For this reason, and others, the story lines just don't seem to flow as easily as our modern novelists writings do.
Mary Shelley who wrote this story was married to Percy Bysshe Shelley, the poet. The book Frankenstein was first published about 1818.
