    Mary Shelley

  • Frankenstein ou le Prométhée moderne Nouv.

    Considéré comme le tout premier roman de science-fiction jamais publié, Frankenstein ou le Prométhée moderne de Mary Shelley a traversé les siècles en laissant une empreinte indélébile. On ne compte plus ses résurgences dans la littérature mondiale et les adaptations théâtrales et cinématographiques que cette formidable oeuvre a engendrées.
    Cette édition est enrichie de somptueuses illustrations réalisées pour l'occasion par Armel Gaulme
    Elle est proposée dans une nouvelle traduction, réalisée à partir de la version originelle de Mary Shelley parue en 1818, et non la version retouchée de 1831, plus répandue.
    Son traducteur, Maxime Le Dain, est un expert en littérature fantastique, et a notamment oeuvré aux traductions et adaptations de Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Alice au pays des merveilles, Scary Stories, et au comics Locke & Key.
    Précisément 200 ans après sa première publication en France (1821), Bragelonne est immensément fier de rééditer ce chef-d'oeuvre de la littérature.

  • Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is the original 1818 'Uncensored' Edition of Frankenstein as first published anonymously in 1818. This original version is much more true to the spirit of the author's original intentions than the heavily revised 1831 edition, edited by Shelley, in part, because of pressure to make the story more conservative. Many scholars prefer the 1818 text to the more common 1831 edition.
    Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by Mary Shelley about a creature produced by an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was nineteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty-one. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley's name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.
    Shelley had travelled in the region of Geneva, where much of the story takes place, and the topics of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her future husband, Percy Shelley. The storyline emerged from a dream. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for weeks about what her possible storyline could be, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. She then wrote Frankenstein.

    `The Dream' is a gothic short story by Mary Shelley.

  • Par l'auteur du célèbre Frankenstein, Mathilda est un roman mélancolique, romantique, et indéniablement d'inspiration autobiographique.
    La mère de Mathilda meurt peu de temps après sa naissance, et son père, ne pouvant supporter son chagrin, abandonne l'enfant à une tante et s'enfuit. Mathilda sera élevée dans la lande écossaise, qui teinte le roman de magnifiques et poétiques descriptions. Quelques années plus tard, alors que Mathilda est presque adulte, son père réapparaît, ce qui la plonge dans un grand bonheur.
    C'est un roman sur la mort, l'amour, et les drames qui traversent les existences. Un texte dramatiquement beau.

  • Le chef d'oeuvre de Mary Shelley dans une nouvelle traduction d'Alain Morvan.

    Publié pour la première fois en 1818, Frankenstein ou le Prométhée moderne est considéré par beaucoup comme le premier véritable roman de science-fiction jamais écrit. Porté à l'écran à de nombreuses reprises, il connaît une nouvelle adaptation cinématographique en 2015.

    "C'est alors qu'à la lueur blafarde et jaunâtre de la lune qui se frayait un chemin au travers des volets, je vis cet être vil - le misérable monstre que j'avais créé. Il soulevait le rideau du lit et avait les yeux - si l'on peut les appeler ainsi - fixés sur moi. Ses mâchoires s'ouvrirent et il bredouilla quelques sons inarticulés, tandis qu'un rictus ridait ses joues. Peut-être dit-il quelque chose, mais je ne l'entendis pas. Il tendit une main comme pour me retenir, mais je m'échappai et descendis précipitamment les escaliers. Je me réfugiai dans la cour de la maison que j'habitais ; j'y demeurai le reste de la nuit, marchant de long en large dans un état d'agitation extrême, écoutant attentivement, percevant et redoutant le moindre son, comme s'il devait annoncer l'approche de ce cadavre démoniaque auquel j'avais si malheureusement donné la vie."

  • 16 juin 1816. L'orage gronde. Dans une ville cachée au milieu des arbres, sur les bords riants du lac de Genève, une petite société s'ennuie. Il y a deux poètes, Byron et Shelley, leurs compagnes, Claire et Mary, un médecin, Polidori. On se raconte d'horribles histoires, selon la mode du temps. On décide même d'en écrire. Dans la nuit, la jeune Mary - elle n'a pas encore 19 ans - ne peut dormir : elle rêve d'un hideux fantasme d'homme. Quelques jours plus tard naissent Victor Frankenstein et sa créature. Récit d'une inquiétante nouveauté, vite porté à la scène, très souvent ensuite à l'écran. Devenu si mythique que, dans l'esprit du public qui a oublié Mary Shelley, le créateur et sa créature se sont confondus.
