Review Text + Jawaban Frankenstein Story

Soal UN SMA/MA 2011

The following text is for questions 1 to 5.

It was the dawn of science and technology. Anything seemed possible –even the creation of life itself. Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with this idea and works relentlessly to prove his theories; but the glory he imagined becomes a living nightmare –not only for him, but for his friends and family too.

Mary Shelley’s gothic horror story- Frankenstein-was first published in 1818 and has been the inspiration behind numerous stage productions and films – many of which strayed a long way away from her original masterpiece. Classical Comics presenting a full-colour graphic novel remains true to this classic tale, bringing the original story to life which has never been created before.

This graphic novel is available in two versions: Original Text and Quick Text editions.  The Original Text stays faithful to Shelley’s original text, while the Quick Text brings the story up to date by presenting the text into a more simplified style so that the tale is accessible to all readers.

The Quick Text edition will allow you to soak up a general feeling for the characters and locations, while the Original Text version will help you easily slip into the language in which the novel was written.

Even if you’re not studying the original, this graphic novel is worth buying. It’s a great story, and should be one that everyone has the chance to read. Now, thanks to this release, even those who don’t particularly like to read too much are given the chance to find this tale and hopefully it may encourage them to search out the original book too.

As with previous Classical Comics, the presentation is first class. The best grade glossy paper really helps to set this graphic novel head and shoulders above the usual comic book releases on the market. Not only that, you also get a pretty comprehensive biography of Shelley; Mary Shelley’s Family Tree; a feature that explains what life was like in the year of the book’s release; and a brief look on how Frankenstein has been adapted to many different formats over the years.
