Author:

The Last Man is an apocalyptic science fiction novel by Mary Shelley, which was first published in 1826. The book tells of a future world that has been ravaged by a plague. The novel was harshly reviewed at the time, and was virtually unknown until a scholarly revival beginning in the 1960s. It is notable in part for its semi-­biographical portraits of Romantic figures in Shelley's circle, particularly Shelley's late husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron. Mary Shelley (Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin; 30 August 1797 - 1 February 1851) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Until the 1970s, Mary Shelley was known . . .

Carlos Clarens, the American historian who spoke so highly of King Kong, has similarly praised The Bride Of Frankenstein (1935), the first of the many sequels to Universal’sFrankenstein. In his book, he declares unequivocally, ‘The Bride Of Frankensteinis, along with King Kong, Hollywood’s finest moment of unbridled imagination.­’ This matches my own estimation of the movie, which is why it is represented here.­The sequel to the story of the ‘mad scientist’ Frankenstein and his creation of a monster came about as a direct result of the enormous success of the original. Universal Pictures again called in scriptwriter John L Balderston, to find a way of reviving the creature who had last been seen perishing in a fire in an old mill. He came up with the idea that the monster had actually escaped the flames by falling through the mill floor into a flooded cellar – and it was from there that he arose to start another reign of terror, while trying at the same time to win the heart of the . . .

Author:

But my father, my beloved and most wretched father... Would he never overcome the fierce passion that now held pitiless dominion over him?

With its shocking theme of father-­daughter incest, Mary Shelley's publisher--­her father, known for his own subversive books--­not only refused to publish Mathilda, he refused to return her only copy of the manuscript, and the work was never published in her lifetime.

His suppression of this passionate novella is perhaps understandable--­unlike her first book, Frankenstein, written a year earlier, Mathilda uses fantasy to study a far more personal reality. It tells the story of a young woman whose mother died in her childbirth--­just as Shelly's own mother died after hers--­and whose relationship with her bereaved father becomes sexually charged as he conflates her with his lost wife, while she becomes involved with a handsome poet. Yet despite characters clearly based on herself, her father,...

Author:

One murky night in 1816, on the shores of Lake Geneva, Lord Byron, famed English poet, challenged his friends to a contest--­to write a ghost story. The assembled group
included the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley; his lover (and future wife) Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin; Mary's stepsister Claire Claremont; and Byron's physician, John William Polidori. The famous result was Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, a work
that has retained its hold on the popular imagination for almost two centuries. Less well-­known was the curious Polidori's contribution: the first vampire novel. And the
evening begat a curse, too: Within a few years of Frankenstein's publication, nearly all of those involved met untimely deaths. Drawing upon letters, rarely tapped archives, and their own magisterial rereading of Frankenstein itself, Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler have crafted a rip-­roaring tale of obsession and creation.
