This new collection of nine rare Gothic tales has been assembled to represent a wide range of adaptations, redactions, plagiarisms and condensations of Gothic motifs and characterisations in the 1820s and 1830s. From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Charles Maturin's Melmoth the Wanderer, The Monster Made By Man illustrates the evolution of the Gothic genre and revisits what is most horrifying - the familiar.
