Egads Strongly prefer Romantic Outlaws The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley 2015 by Charlotte Gordon a modern exploration of the lives and works of two remarkable and fascinating women writerphilosopherinfluencersAlthough I appreciated the focus on Mary Shelley and the uotes from her journal overall I found this biography first published in 1951 to have an odd and off putting tone It too freuently focuses on comparing Shelley s thoughts and works to those of her father William Godwin and husband Percy Bysshe Shelley This book received praise when published Was it simply that there were few works that focused on Mary Shelley at the timeThe book is split into two parts the biography and literary criticism of Shelley s well known works Frankenstein and The Last Man her historical romance novel Perkin Warbeck her notes on Percy Bysshe Shelley s poetry and Mary Shelley s own verse There s scant mention of Mary Shelley s short stories or other novels Lodore Valperga Falkner or MathildaThe biography is fairly straightforward but could do with description of the time period to put some of Shelley s experiences from 1797 1851 in context The author also seems oddly critical of Shelley s despondent withdrawn and introspective periods ie following the deaths of her children death of her husband and later death of her friend Lord Byron It s not a sympathetic portrayal Dear Mary Shelley seems misunderstood in life and also in death by this biographer For those familiar with Shelley s works the criticism section has little to add It freuently seems overly critical with too much emphasis on trying to pigeonhole Shelley s works and indeed her persona as following Romantic like her husband or Rational like her father philosophy There s very little respect shown for or credit given for Shelley s own ingenuity For those who appreciate Shelley s contributions to the literary scene lines like these baffle and irritateMary Shelley s was not the type of creative mind that generates it own flow of inspiration Her talent depended very much on the fluctuating influences of external things like the weatherThis lyrical faculty emanates possibly from the Wollstonecraft Irish strain in her which had been largely overwhelmed by Godwin s prosaic influenceTaken together Child of Light and Romantic Outlaws clearly illustrate the influence of biographers and critics on a writer s reception legacy and portrayal Although Child of Light does not seem to do Mary Shelley justice it would be far worse if she were forgotten At least the author paid Mary Shelley some limited and marred attention

For Mary Godwin eight years with Shelley were the best of times and the worst of times On the one hand living with Shelley brought her travel excitement and intellectual stimulation On the other hand their first three children died in early childhood the first child a daughter was born prematurely Shelley was constantly in debt both their reputations were tarnished because they eloped when Shelley was married to another woman and Mary was barely 17 and therefore they were not welcome in Mr Godwin s house and Shelley s father had previously cut him off financiallyShelley may have been a poetic genius but at best he was reckless or else had little common sense or both In reading Recollections of the Last Days of Shelley and Byron by Edward John Trelawny I learned that Shelley had little aptitude for sailing and practically no experience sailing on large bodies of water This carefree attitude and lack of judgment explains his premature death by drowning in 1822 off the coast of Italy nothing romantic or heroic about thatMary s life after Shelley was a struggle beset with financial woes and unreliable relationships with family and inconstant friends and associates All in all a rather sad and tragic lifeMuriel Spark is an excellent writer and does what she can with the material The first part of the book up to Shelley s death is interesting that the part about life after Shelley Things pick up again in the last part of the book in which Spark discusses Mary s literary output She wrote than just Frankenstein
