Juxta and Frankenstein in the Classroom

In case you missed it, NINES’s digital collation tool Juxta got a shout-out from Tawnya Ravy on the Studies in the Novel website. As Tawnya explains, “Scholarly editions of [Frankenstein] often include the 1818 preface and 1831 introduction as paratexts for understanding the authorial background of the text, and Juxta allows students to verify Shelley’s claims about the distribution of alterations in the later edition as well as their impact on the story.” Tawnya’s full discussion can be found here: https://studiesinthenovel.org/content/juxta-and-frankenstein
