Read full description of the books Contos Góticos:Mary Shelley, criadora do inesquecivel Frankenstein, foi uma autora profícua e dotada de uma imaginação ímpar. Contudo, devido ao reconhecimento de que Frankenstein sempre foi alvo, a sua restante obra tem sido pouco estudada e divulgada. Os Contos Góticos aqui apresentados são exemplo da mestria literária de Mary Shelley. Dominando com segurança o estilo gótico, desenvolve uma linguagem com um timbre muito próprio, tratando temas como o terror, a loucura, a desolação e a solidão com uma sensibilidade única. Algumas preocupações recorrentes na sua obra- o fim da civilização, a aniquilação do espírito humano e os perigos do desenvolvimento tecnológico- distinguem-na dos seus contemporâneos e estabelecem-na como uma mulher à frente do seu tempo.
Read information about the authorMary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft.
Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels. After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein. It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality, that a full-length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley's letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published.
The well-meaning attempts of Mary Shelley's son and daughter-in-law to "Victorianise" her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a more conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest. Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley's works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression.
The eclipse of Mary Shelley's reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement. She was seen as a one-novel author, if that. In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value. Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated. Shelley's recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized; after Percy's death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions: "I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea". Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.
