Description

This tale of a father's incestuous love for his daughter, his suicide, and the daughter's reaction isn't strictly autobiographical -- but elements of it come from Mary Shelley's life. The three main characters are clearly Mary Shelley herself, Godwin, and Percy Bysshe Shelley -- and their relations can easily be reassorted to correspond with their lives. An important and little-known tale from the author of Frankenstein.

Author Biography

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797 - 1851) was an English 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.
