Are you a student struggling to understand Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein?
Or are you an educator wanting ready-made exercises and guidance to help you teach this difficult text? Do your students need support to understand the language properly and work independently on the book?
This edition of Shelley’s classic horror novel contains a comprehensive study guide to the work as well as extensive questions for students to work on in order to help their understanding. Aimed specifically at students and teachers reading the book as an exam text, there is a detailed introduction which outlines how to understand the difficult language, how to write top grade essays, and how to discuss the contexts of the novel. The complete text is punctuated by useful comments and engaging tasks on every chapter. When you buy the paperback, you will be able to access the e-book for free and use many of the web links which are embedded throughout the text.
“What’s really great about this edition is that my students can work through it and there are interesting and useful questions waiting for them at the end of every chapter,” a secondary English teacher.
“This was a good book to work through on my own. Buying the paperback meant I got the e-book free and I was able to use all the nifty links embedded in the text as well,” an A Level student.
