What was your process for gathering all the notes and annotations for this edition of Frankenstein?
I certainly owe a debt to those who have annotated Frankenstein previously. The key to annotating is to read the text really, really slowly, asking myself questions as I go along—what does this word mean, who is this person, what historical event are the characters talking about? Then I go back and try to address those questions. Looking at the work of other (previous) annotators helps me decide what questions I want to ask myself.
