Dopo anni di studi che gli hanno consentito di attingere ai misteri più profondi della creazione, l'illustre scienziato svizzero Viktor Frankenstein compone una creatura cucendo insieme pezzi di cadaveri, e riesce a infonderle la vita. La scienza onnipotente sembra così realizzare il sogno di Prometeo, colui che rubò il fuoco agli Dei, ma ancora una volta la superba sfida dell'uomo alle leggi di Natura porterà a conseguenze drammatiche e incontrollabili.

Some books teach you something new each time you revisit them.
