About this book

This volume considers the work and life of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851). It looks not only at Frankenstein and its composition, sources, themes and reception but at the wide range of other work by Shelley including such novels as The Last Man and Mathilda and her tales, reviews, travel writing and the (until recently neglected) Literary Lives of Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and French writers. There are detailed entries on her personal and/or literary relationship with her parents Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley, Byron, Coleridge and Claire Clairmont; on her religion, feminism, politics, relation to Romanticism, portraits and representation in drama, film and television; and on the influence of her work on such writers as Poe, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Brontës, Dickens and H.G. Wells. 

About the authors

Martin Garrett has written widely on Romantic and Renaissance literature. He is the author of the Palgrave Literary Dictionaries of Byron (joint winner of the Elma Dangerfield prize in 2011) and Percy Bysshe Shelley. His A Romantics Chronology, 1780-1832 (Palgrave Macmillan 2016) won an Information Resources award from the library association CILIP in 2017.

Reviews

“The intended readership of, according to the series editors’ foreword, ‘students, graduate students, teachers, scholars and advanced general readers’… will thus indeed find the Dictionary a helpful reference work, not least because its bibliography and the references in the longer articles direct them to relevant scholarship on Shelley and her works. This makes the Dictionary a good starting point for anyone engaging with Shelley’s better-known or indeed her less canonical works.” (Rebekka Rohleder, Anglia, Vol. 138 (4), 2020)
