The Cambridge Companion To Mary Shelley

Known from her day to ours as 'the Author of Frankenstein', Mary Shelley indeed created one of the central myths of modernity. But she went on to survive all manner of upheaval - personal, political, and professional - and to produce an oeuvre of bracing intelligence and wide cultural sweep. The Cambridge Companion to Mary Shelley helps readers to assess for themselves her remarkable body of work. In clear, accessible essays, a distinguished group of scholars place Shelley's works in several historical and aesthetic contexts: literary history, the legacies of her parents William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and of course the life and afterlife, in cinema, robotics and hypertext, of Frankenstein. Other topics covered include Mary Shelley as a biographer and cultural critic, as the first editor of Percy Shelley's works, and as travel writer. This invaluable volume is complemented by a chronology, a guide to further reading and a select filmography. Review: 'This volume brings together the best of modern approaches to Mary Shelley. The essays in it are written with clarity. As such this collection provides an excellent introduction to Mary Shelley's work and the ways in which it can be read.' British Journal of Eighteenth Century Studies 'There is much here to stimulate students, but those reading Shelley for the first time should also be pointed towards the alternative critical and biographical traditions ...'
