What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow.

Mary Shelley

By the time of her death, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) was remembered for two things: having been the wife of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, and for writing 'Frankenstein'. Frankenstein's, creation became an iconic figure in literature and film, but in more recent years Mary Shelley's other works, such as the early science fiction work, 'The Last Man' and the disturbing 'Mathilda' have come to be widely appreciated.
