              Although written mostly as a fictional work, this piece of literature uses many real world examples of the occult to make its fictional points. Written in a series of ten letters, the book gives a very personal perspective on one person's view of the occult. Although Walter Scott... was failing in health while writing this work, a unique charm is given to the text in the midst of his illness near the end of his life.

Our protagonist amid the power plays is the titular Quentin Durward. Falling into the service of Louis XI as a Garde cossaise (Scottish Guard) owing to hi...s excellent archery skills, the young Scot bears witness to and is involved with the internecine intrigues and plotting ensuing between the King of France and the various nobles he views as mistrustful. A staunch royalist with loyalty for his benefactor, Quentin must heroically defend the monarch against would-be challengers to the throne and the king's authority. Throughout his adventures, Quentin fends off various dangers and perils, in a world where a single misstep can mean the gallows. As well as being a capable and nimble-footed combatant, Quentin has ambitions to win - through gallantry and surefooted combat - a French noblewoman's hand in marriage.

              With like many great works of art, 'Frankenstein' was initially misunderstood. The first reviews were decidedly mixed. An anonymous review in The Literary Panorama and National Register published June 1 1818 dismissed Shelley's work as 'a feeble imitation of one that was very pop...ular in its day.' Other periodicals were kinder. Writing in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine on 20 March 1818, Walter Scott praised the unusual Gothic Romance as a tale, though wild in incident, is written in plain and forcible English, without exhibiting that mixture of hyperbolical Germanisms with which tales of wonder are usually told. 'Frankenstein and the Critics' presents a selection of the most prominent reviews from the time of Frankenstein's publication. Also included is Mary Shelley's uncensored 1818 text often labeled 'Frankenstein 1818' presented in its unabridged entirety. This is the original, 1818 text. In 1831, the more traditionally first popular edition in one volume appeared.
