Titles in this collection:

The Last Man (Wordsworth Classics):

This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction and Notes by Dr Pamela Bickley, The Godolphin and Latymer School, formerly of Royal Holloway, University of London. The Last Man is Mary Shelley's apocalyptic fantasy of the end of human civilization. Set in the late twenty-first century, the novel unfolds a sombre and pessimistic vision of mankind confronting inevitable destruction. Interwoven with her futuristic theme, Mary Shelley incorporates idealized portraits of Shelley and Byron, yet rejects Romanticism and its faith in art and nature.

Mathilda and Other Stories:

Mathilda is Mary Shelley€s haunting story of an incestuous and fatal love. The narrative traces the teenaged Mathilda€s reunion with her unnamed father, and the development of their obsessive bond that culminates in suicide. Shelley€s own father, William Godwin, was so disturbed after reading the manuscript that he refused to return it to her and it remained unpublished for over one hundred years. This near-forgotten and harrowing work encompasses the Romantic themes of the individual€s growth, isolation, and the power of imagination

Frankenstein (Wordsworth Classics):

Begun when the author was only eighteen and conceived from a nightmare, Frankenstein is the deeply disturbing story of a monstrous creation which has terrified and chilled readers since its first publication in 1818. The novel has thus seared its way into the popular imagination while establishing itself as one of the pioneering works of modern science fiction.
