Mary Shelley and Frankenstein   NEW!

Mary Shelley is known as the author of Frankenstein, and maybe not much else. But there is so much more to know. Her life was fascinating; it shaped her intellect and her art, yet few know her story. And her novel, Frankenstein, is so much a part of pop culture, that it is often mischaracterized and its brilliance obscured. In this course, you will get to know Mary Shelley, and come to a new appreciation of Frankenstein, whether you are being introduced to the novel for the first time, or revisiting it. Please begin to read Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality by Emily W. Sunstein, available on abebooks.com or alibis.com, prior to the first session. Please bring a copy of Frankenstein.
