Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley

别名: Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin 出生: 30/08/1797 逝世: 01/02/1851 性别: Female 类型: Gothic 职业: Novelist

Although her name is inextricably linked with that of her husband and great love, the Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley was a superlative author in her own right, and one of the most singular and unusual talents of her generation. Her best-known work is Frankenstein (1818), a novel that is part Gothic thriller, part philosophical treatise, part science fiction, and she later developed a successful career writing fiction, travel and biography. Born Mary Godwin, daughter of the feminist pioneer Mary Wollstonecraft and the radical thinker William Godwin, Shelley had a rebellious, free-spirited temperament, and after she eloped with Percy at the age of 16 became involved with the unconventional circle that surrounded Lord Byron. Following her husband’s untimely death in a boating accident, she edited and championed his works – to the extent that for many years her own achievements were sidelined.
