Frankenstein Variorum

The Frankenstein Variorum project digitally collates five distinct versions of the novel Frankenstein produced between 1816 and 1831. Included in this project are:

  • Code in Python for collating editions organized in different forms of XML markup, selecting some of that markup as a basis comparison.

  • Code for an XSLT pipeline that prepares a TEI "spine" curating locations of variants in earlier digital editions of Frankenstein.

  • Code in JavaScript and HTML for designing a Variorum Viewer, an interface for reading and comparing the five versions that also involves importing edition data from the Shelley-Godwin Archive's edition of the Frankenstein manuscript notebook.

  • A set of scholarly annotations that comments on changes between witnesses.
