How Frankenstein Came to Life

The great novel Frankenstein, like other works of literature, did not spring fully realized from Mary Shelley’s mind; it evolved over time until the work as we know it was created. To watch this significant piece of literature develop, we now have access to all known manuscripts as well as their transcriptions. Here is a listing of the major editions, reprints, and translations of the novel; most are based on the 1831 edition. Several additional online editions can also be consulted.
