Frankenstein

Mary Shelley, 1818
Famous for: Frankenstein’s monster, of course. And a mad chase toward the North Pole.

Mary Shelley’s manuscript pages for Frankenstein were edited by her husband, the great romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.  The influence of the “Romantic era“ can be seen on Frankenstein’s every page.   The writers of the Romantic era were not so much interested in “romance” as in nature — and of the place of human beings in the natural order of things.  Which makes Frankenstein, in its own way, the ultimate “romantic novel.”
