"Two centuries ago, a young woman changed the literary world with one book. Mary Shelley was only twenty when she wrote the book that became "Frankenstein". Although her father, William Godwin, gave her a far better education than any woman of the age could have hoped, her life became a nightmare. By the time she was fifteen, a married man, Percy Shelley, made love to her on her mother's grave. At sixteen, she escaped from home by running away to explore Europe. Shelley and Lord Byron, both major figures as Romantic poets, urged her to expand her understanding of writing. Shelley provided polish while her mentor, Lord Byron, challenged her. Together, they urged her to prove she was as good a writer as the best poet-philosophers of the Enlightenment. Both men admired her mind, but both wanted more. Mary Shelley went on to invent science fition, and published the book that two hundred years later, has never been out of print and inspired an entire genre of art, literature, and film." -- back cover.
