not yet rated|write a review
Although Frankenstein is now widely taught in classes on Romanticism, little attention has been paid to the considerable corpus of Mary Shelley's other works. Indeed the excitement of the last decade at feminist approaches to Frankenstein has ironically obscured the persona of its author. Thiscollection of essays, written by a preeminent group of Romantic scholars, sketches a portrait of the "other Mary Shelley": the writer and intellectual who recognized the turbulent interplay among issues of family, gender, and society, and whose writings resonate strongly in the setting ofcontemporary politics, culture, and feminism. By analyzing a previously neglected body of novels, novellas, reviews, travel writing, essays, letters, biographies, and tales, and by emphasizing Mary Shelley's shrewd assessment of Romanticism, the essays in this volume offer a ground-breakingevaluation of one of the foremost cultural critics of the nineteenth century.

Editorial Reviews

"The Other Mary Shelley: Beyond Frankenstein is an important and honest book because it takes its readers to the point of reading Mary Shelley in ways that go beyond the ideological premises on which much of it is based."--Christianity and Literature
