Mary Shelley is best known for her classic novel Frankenstein, a literary masterpiece that remains one of the most frequently taught books in high school and college classrooms, but her other works of fiction are also important and increasingly popular. In addition, her personal life continues to fascinate. She was the wife of the great Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and the daughter of the feminist activist Mary Wollstonecraft. The new Critical Companion to Mary Shelley is the definitive one-stop resource for anyone interested in this influential author.

-A concise but thorough biography of Shelley
-Entries on Shelley's major works--including extensive coverage of Frankenstein, as well as all her other novels and important short stories--with subentries on each work's main characters
-Entries on related people, publications, and topics, such as Byronic hero, Paradise Lost, romanticism, science fiction, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Mary Wollstonecraft
-Appendixes, including a chronology, a bibliography of Shelley's works, and a secondary source bibliography.
