Mary Shelley was an English Romantic novelist, biographer and editor, best known as the writer of "Frankenstein.". Mary Shelley was 21 when the book was published; she started to write it when she was 18. The story deals with an ambitious young scholar. He creates life but then rejects his creation, a monster which plagues him for the remainder of his life.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was born in London. Her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary Shelley's father was the writer and political journalist William Godwin, who became famous with his work "An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice."
In her childhood Mary Shelley was left to educate herself amongst her father's intellectual circle. In 1812 Godwin sent Mary to live in Dundee. Mary published her first poem at the age of ten. At the age of 16 she ran away to France and Switzerland with Percy Shelley; they had met at the end of 1812. Percy and Mary married in 1816 - Shelley's wife Harriet had committed suicide by drowning. Their first child, a daughter, died in Venice, Italy, a few years later.
The story of Frankenstein started on summer in 1816, when Mary joined with Percy Shelley and Claire Clairmont near Geneva Lord Byron. She took a challenge, set by Lord Byron, to write a ghost story. With her husband's encouragement, she completed the novel within a year. At the Villa Diodati she had been a "silent listener" of her husband and Byron, who discussed about galvanism. At Eton College Shelley had become interested in Luigi Calvani's experiments with electric shocks to make dead frogs' muscles twitch. It is possible that his teacher, James Lind, had demonstrated the technique to Shelley. Byron and Shelley talked Dr Darwin's experiments with a piece of vermicelli. In her 'Introduction' to the 1831 edition Mary revealed that she got the story from a dream, in which she saw "the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with a uneasy, half vital motion."
So came the idea for "Frankenstein." When you introduce this book to your students they should try to clear their minds of any preconceptions they may have about the main character and creature, as foisted upon then by the movies. This is a very different creature than that created by Boris Karloff long ago.
This is a rather lengthy work and should be read by your students over an extended period of time, slowly, so that they can absorb all of the characters and the action.
