Frankenstein illustrated. The summer of 1816, five people, among them the famous poets Lord Byron and Percy B. Shelley, confined themselves to a villa near Lake Geneva and indulged in a literary game of devising the most frightening tale imaginable. That night Mary Shelley, only nineteen years old, conceived a terrifying and marvelous story, whose aim was “to make the reader dread to look around him, to make his blood run cold and his heart beat faster”: Frankenstein.
