“Let us read, and let us dance;
these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

I made this: Avid Reader at 12:39 am
Works by Mary Shelley

In honour of the upcoming West Yorkshire Playhouse production on Mary Shelley (more details soon!), I'd like to pass on some invaluable links!

While not all of this incomparable author's works are available online (for free!) I've found the following for your reading pleasure!


Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus

NOTE - there are a number of different versions of this novel - with radical changes between them. Personally I prefer the 1818 text as it seems to include necessary context re scientific and philisophical thoughts of the time. 
Unfortunately; I'm not a 100% sure if this is *that* version, but it's a free copy regardless!

The Last Man

For Children:  
Proserpine and Midas
