“Mary Shelley: The Woman and the Monster” A talk by Sally Brocklehurst If a wet summer by Lake Geneva watered the seed of the short story that would become Frankenstein, a damp cottage near the river in Marlow has at least an equal claim to fame. It was here, between 1816 and 1818, that Mary Shelley (1797-1851) finished her most celebrated work. But of those whom Frankenstein’s Monster was to destroy, there is one victim distinguished only by her absence from the pages of the novel – Mary Shelley herself. Come and learn more about this underrated writer and the hellish creation that continues to stalk her. Wed 23rd May | 8.00pm | Church House (next to Hughenden Church) Hughenden Park | Tickets: £8
