Various Information about the novel
.  Mary Shelley is the daughter of philosopher William Godwin and feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft. The later is most famous for her political writing A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). This work was much better received than her later A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, which were unacceptable for people at the time. She was quite blamed for her work and died when her daughter was still very young. Mary Shelley therefore grew up motherless and filled this void with her vivid imagination, always inventing people and things. She later became the wife of the poet Percy Shelley. The idea for Frankentein came to her during a nightmare she had while staying with her husband and the poet Lord Byron, near the lake of Geneva. The writers, inspired by a book of German ghost stories, had decided to each write a ghost story. Shelley's story had so much potential that her husband encouraged her to make it into a novel. She was only 21 when it was first released.
