Quotes & Awards

  • “It is a mistake to read Frankenstein as a modern novel of psychological realism…Where Dracula and other conventional Gothic works are fantasies, with clear links to fairly tales and legends, and even popular ballads, Frankenstein has the theoretical and cautionary tone of science fiction.” 

    Joyce Carol Oates

  • “The quest of a solitary and ravaged consciousness first for consolation, then for revenge, and finally for a self-destruction that will be apocalyptic, that will bring down the creator with his creature.” 

    Harold Bloom

  • “A subtle and ironic prophecy that raises the question of who exactly is the real monster in this story.”

    Jesse Larsen, 500 Great Books by women

  • “As a novel, Frankenstein…is a work that offers us a powerful and enduring vision. Surely genius was required for that.” 

    Leonard Wolf
