Mary Shelley

Her Greatest Love Inspired Her Darkest Creation.

What was he thinking wearing a jacket like that?
Although she will always be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein’s monster, the real life story of Mary Shelley, and the creation of her immortal monster, is nearly as fantastic as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father in 18th-century London, she is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world, when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley. So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform her and fuel the writing of her Gothic master-work. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channelled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.
