About the Author
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was born in 1797 in London, England. She was the daughter of two eighteenth-century intellectual giants: political philosopher William Godwin and famed feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft. Shelley was also married to the famed poet Percy Byshe Shelley, for who she spent the majority of her life trying to publish his work. Her magnum opus, Frankenstein, was conceived on a rainy night at Lake Geneva after a waking dream that she had a few nights after Lord Byron had proposed that they each write a ghost story. Suffering from a possible brain tumor, Shelley passed away in 1851.
