Painting a portrait of a gothic icon, this biography recounts Mary Shelley s dramatic life, from her youth and turbulent marriage to her career as writer and editor. At the age of 20, Mary Shelley secured her place in history by writing "Frankenstein," now acknowledged as one of the great literary classics. The daughter of radical philosopher William Godwin and pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley led an unconventional life, which is depicted with previously unpublished material in this remarkable biography that was originally released in 1987as a thorough revision of Muriel Spark's 1951 book "Child of Light." Spark lends her own talents as an accomplished writer and her sharp intelligence to this fascinating examination of Mary Shelley's life and writings."
