NY Public Library lança “Frankenstein: The Afterlife of Shelley’s Circle”

A New York Public Library lançou a segunda aplicação do seu projecto Biblion, desta vez dedicada ao clássico de Mary Shelley. “Frankenstein: The Afterlife of Shelley’s Circle” está disponível gratuitamente, tanto em versão Web como para iPad, e incluí digitalizações do manuscrito da obra, ensaios, galerias de imagens e questionários, com especial enfâse na interactividade com o leitor.
What makes a monster? What is it like living on the margins of society? Is technology inherently good or bad? These questions guided Mary Shelley 200 years ago as she wrote her classic novel Frankenstein — they remain just as relevant today. The second edition of Biblion explores the connections between Shelley’s time and our own, showing how the classics resonate throughout society and the breadth of NYPL’s offerings.
