Example text

We first meet the quiet, receptive Margaret Saville, a representation of Mary Shelley舗s most public persona; we are then prepared to encounter her at a more profound level, in the loneliness of Walton; when we get to Victor舗s narrative, we are reading about Mary舗s deep-rooted questions regarding herself as creator. In revealing these levels of her personality, Shelley prepares us舒and herself舒for the revelation of her 舠core:舡 the guilt-ridden, affection-craving creature who desperately seeks an acceptance it does not seem to find.

His loss made her surviving son all the more precious to her, and as their financial problems persisted Mary turned to writing for money rather than literary reputation. Many of Frankenstein舗s readers are surprised to discover that Shelley wrote steadily through her life, producing six novels after her first, Frankenstein, two verse plays, two travel works, several biographies, translations, children舗s stories, and edited works.

The monster/ creator conflation most forcefully conveys this idea of humanity舗s conflicting impulses to create and destroy, to love and hate. Shelley could not have chosen a subject with more relevance to twentieth- and twenty-first-century readers than humankind舗s own potential inhumanity to itself. Our ambitions have led us to the point where we, too, can accomplish what Victor did in his laboratory that dreary night in November: artificially create life.
