“adaptation is a mark of a survivor’s intelligence, and she was a great survivor. out of material we would most of us find overwhelming she created an astonishing life. despite being born a girl and motherless in her particular time and place, and despite being almost crushed by the ‘great men’ around her, she produced, while still only a teenager, the novel that uniquely sums up the restless, experimental spirit of her romantic times. she changed the face of fiction; she has challenged every ‘modern’ generation since she wrote her first novel to explore both empirical science and moral philosophy; and in the hubristic researcher frankenstein and his creature, the nearly human of our nightmares, she created two enduring archetypes.” in search of mary shelley, by fiona sampson.
although i sometimes felt that fiona sampson went a little too far with her imaginative inferences, i was fascinated by this biographical excavation of the extraordinary life of mary shelley.
