Review quote

'... essential to a perceptive knowledge of her work.' Professor Dr Heinrich F. Plett, Universiteet Essen 'This is a very useful volume, which provides a unique resource for students who wish to explore Mary Shelley beyond Frankenstein. ... reasonably priced and excellently produced ...' Dr David Hopkins, University of Bristol 'Essential reading for any undergraduate or postgraduate seriously interested in writing about any of Mary Shelley's works, or about any aspect of her life. Well chosen selections.' Dr S Shatto, The Queen's University of Belfast 'for the non-specialist reader this collection is ... a most useful one ... The editorial material is brisk, usable, and authoritative. There is an informative chronology and a brief but comprehensive bibliography ... altogether it is a fascinating collection and a valuable aid to teaching.'
