A Mary Shelley Encyclopedia

 Mary Shelley is famous as, first, the author of Frankenstein and, second, as the wife of a famous poet and daughter of a famous novelist and philosopher. Due in no small part to Frankenstein's place on high-school and college reading lists, her other works have been reprinted in recent years. This has resulted in a reassessment and an emergence of Shelley from the shadows of her great work and her family. Exploring these other works leaves one with a sense of an incredible life story and intellect that Frankenstein barely revealed.
