Book Description:
This is the first collection of all Mary Shelley's novels, travel writing, journalism and prefaces. The edition makes a major contribution to the study of nineteenth century English literature. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797 1851) was the only child of the famous radicals, Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin. In 1814 she eloped with, and later married, Percy Bysshe Shelley. After his death in 1822 she returned to London where she pursued a professional writing career. Her most famous work is Frankenstein (1818), but she was author also of six other novels: Matilda (1819), Valperga (1823), The Last Man (1826), Perkin Warbeck (1830), Lodore (1835) and Falkner (1837). She also wrote for various magazines and journals (including the Westminster Review and the London Magazine). She wrote two works of travel writing History of a Six Weeks' Tour (1817) and Rambles in Germany and Italy (1844). Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is the single most widely read work of the English Romantic period, yet the author's other works including five novels, two travel books, essays and reviews remain relatively unknown. Well received in their own era, they gained for Mary Shelley the reputation of an important, imaginative, and at times, controversial, author.
