About this Resource

About This Site

The main purpose of this site is to provide information on Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, especially material that might not be readily available or accessible in every library. Currently we offer a chronology of Mary Shelley's life and work and several contemporary reviews of her novels, as well as reviews of the plays inspired by Frankenstein. As with most of the web, this page is continuously developing, and I continue to check and refine the dates in the chronology. Please keep checking this page for further notes, reviews, and information on MWS.

About the Chronology

This page has been created by Shanon Lawson, at the University of Delaware, with the assistance of of Charles E. Robinson.

Note: If you need general information on Mary Shelley, the sources in the Bibliography are a good starting place.
