With like many great works of art, 'Frankenstein' was initially misunderstood. The first reviews were decidedly mixed. An anonymous review in The Literary Panorama and National Register published June 1 1818 dismissed Shelley's work as 'a feeble imitation of one that was very popular in its day.' Other periodicals were kinder. Writing in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine on 20 March 1818, Walter Scott praised the unusual Gothic Romance as a "tale, though wild in incident, is written in plain and forcible English, without exhibiting that mixture of hyperbolical Germanisms with which tales of wonder are usually told." 'Frankenstein and the Critics' presents a selection of the most prominent reviews from the time of Frankenstein's publication. Also included is Mary Shelley's uncensored 1818 text often labeled 'Frankenstein 1818' presented in its unabridged entirety. This is the original, 1818 text. In 1831, the more traditionally first "popular" edition in one volume appeared.

"Adonais" represents the height of artistic achievement for nineteenth-century Romantic poetry. Percy Bysshe Shelley's book-length elegy in the pastoral style mourns the loss of fellow poet John Keats in 495 remarkably accomplished lines. Shelley himself regarded "Adonais" as the best of his work, and the poem is a must-read for fans of the Romantic movement, or for anyone who has struggled with loss.

Percy Bysshe Shelley Books, Percy Bysshe Shelley poetry book Poems and Prose Authors: Percy Bysshe Shelley, Timothy Webb
Publisher: Everymans Library
Published Date: 1995
Categories: English literature
A short life, and a turbulent one-Shelley died at the age of twenty-nine. The work he left behind is among the most lyrically beautiful and politically committed in the language. Inspired by the Age of Revolutions, Shelley proved too provocative for England. Sent down from Oxford and disillusioned with English life, he spent his last years in self imposed exile in Italy. His writings on vegetarianism, the marriage system, love, Christianity, the devil, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and political reform are represented in this selection, together with complete versions of Address...on the 'Death of the Princess Charlotte' and a 'Defence of Poetry'.

The wonderful things in my old black grip,
The things I got on my little trip.'
