For lovers of great horror, this is really cool news. Mary Shelley’s original, groundbreaking manuscript for her gothic masterpiece “Frankenstein” is now online. The New York Public Library, The University of Maryland’s Institute for Technology in the Humanities and Oxford’s Bodleian Library (among other institutions) have banded together to bring this to life as part of the Shelley-Goodwin Archive.
Not only is it fascinating to see the story in Shelley’s own hand, it’s really captivating to see so directly the collaboration between Mary and Percy (the literary giant that was her husband) that comes through in these pages. Amazing stuff!
