Description


En el verano de 1816, el poeta Percy Bysshe Shelley y su esposa Mary se reunieron con Lord Byron y su médico Polidori en una villa a orillas del lago Leman. A instancias de Lord Byron y para animar una velada tormentosa, decidieron que cada uno inventaría una historia de fantasmas. La más callada y reservada, Mary Shelley, dio vida así a quien sería su personaje más famoso: el doctor Frankenstein. Al cabo de un año completaría la novela, hoy día un clásico imperecedero de la literatura. La historia es de todos conocida: un científico decide crear una criatura con vida propia a la que luego rechaza. Metáfora sobre la vida, la libertad y el amor, Frankenstein es una maravillosa fábula con todos los ingredientes de los grandes mitos.
