    About Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley


    1. Mary Shelley n e Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft.Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley Romance and Reality, that a full length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley s letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published.The well meaning attempts of Mary Shelley s son and daughter in law to Victorianise her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley s works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression The eclipse of Mary Shelley s reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement She was seen as a one novel author, if that In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated Shelley s recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized after Percy s death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.
