""The Last Man" created an entirely new genre, compounded of the domestic romance, the Gothic extravaganza, and the sociological novel. . . . ÝMary Shelley's¨ most interesting, if not her most consummate work."-Muriel Spark. "A fascinating . . . novel-romance on a timely subject."-"Studies in English Literature." "An absorbing roman clef, Ýit¨ develops one of the major themes of romantic art, that of spiritual isolation, and . . . treats it in a unique way."-"The Year's Work in English Studies."Reseña del editor:
I will write and leave in this most ancient city, this "world's sole monument," a record of these things. I will leave a monument of the existence of Verney, the Last Man. At first I thought only to speak of plague, of death, and last, of desertion; but I lingered fondly on my early years, and recorded with sacred zeal the virtues of my companions. They have been with me during the fulfilment of my task. I have brought it to an end--I lift my eyes from my paper--again they are lost to me. Again I feel that I am alone.
