Profile: Mary Shelley

Author

Mary Shelley’s tumultuous life is worthy of a gothic novel. There’s plenty of tragedy and heartache, love and a dash of scandal and a smattering of celebrity. Born on August 30, 1797, in London, she never knew her mother, famed feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who died shortly after the birth and Mary was raised by her father, philosopher and writer William Godwin.
Her father remarried and, in true Cinderella fashion, Mary was poorly treated while her stepsister was sent away to school to be educated. Still, the Godwin household must have been an education in itself. Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth were regular guests and there was an extensive library for the impressionable young girl to explore.
In 1814, Mary began a relationship with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley - while he was still married. They fled the country together to the consternation of her father, who refused to talk to Mary for years. The couple struggled financially and lost their first child in 1815, a daughter who only survived a few days. The following summer, the Shelley’s were holidaying in Switzerland with Lord Byron when he suggested they should all try their hand at writing a horror story. It was then that Mary began work on what would become her most famous novel, Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus.
In that same year, Mary’s half-sister committed suicide, followed by Shelley’s first wife. The couple finally wed in 1816. Two years later, Frankenstein was published and quickly proved to be a huge success. But Mary’s personal life was still turbulent. They lost two more children and only one son, Percy, grew to adulthood. Shelley, who had cheated on his wife, drowned in 1822 on a sailing trip with a friend.
A widow at 24, Shelley continued to write and published several more novels, including Valperga and the science fiction tale The Last Man. She died of brain cancer on February 1, 1851, at age 53.

It’s perhaps hard to believe that Mary Shelley was just 18 when she started writing her iconic gothic horror story and she was 20 when it was published in 1818.
She tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist obsessed with creating a grotesque Creature in an experiment that goes horribly wrong.
Told in epistolary form, the novel documents a fictional correspondence between polar explorer Captain Robert Walton and his sister, Margaret.
Walton finds Victor Frankenstein frozen and close to death on the ice and discovers he has been following a monstrous figure the ship’s crew has spotted.
As Frankenstein recovers, he explains how his life’s work developing a secret technique to impart life to non-living matter had resulted in him creating a monster.
Repulsed by the Creature, the scientist flees to find a friend, only to return and find the monster has gone.
Unleashed, it causes murder and mayhem tempered by the feelings of regret and confusion exacerbated when Frankenstein changes his mind about creating a monstrous mate for his creation.
