Mary Shelley crafted the legendary story of Frankenstein as a ghost story at first. However, the main theme of Frankenstein was seeded long before that. She had this strong drive and interest for supernatural and alchemy. Both of her parents were writers, so there's no accident that she was also involved in that.
Mary Shelley is one of the first science-fiction writers emerging at that time. Most of her work was influenced and inspired from her friend, husband, and poet Percy Shelley. Some of her other writings were inspired by Diodati circle. More of that in the biography.
In this biography, you'll also learn who Mary was as a person: relationships, family background, childhood. How she coped with tremendous loss in the family and how that influenced her work? How Mary Shelley came up with Frankenstein's story and why she published it anonymously at first? What about the other editions and revisions of Frankenstein?
Mary Shelley was truly delighted that Frankenstein inspired others to create. She attended performances, plays and productions based on her story and frankly she was quite amused by that fact. Back then it was possible to present a play of the book without the author's permission or entitlement. This made Frankenstein such a success.
