When a young girl of 18 writes a book that becomes the first monster film...

The Londonian daughter of the writer and political journalist William Godwin, famous for his An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (1793), published her first poem at the age of ten.



When she was sixteen, she escaped to France and Switzerland with the poet Percy Shelley, whom she married in 1816.

Frankenstein came into the world then, on the shores of Lake Geneva.

In 1818 the Shelleys left England for Italy.

Percy Shelley drowned in 1822 in the Bay of La Spezia, and Mary returned to England suffering from nervous breakdowns after his death and, later, the loss of her daughter.


In England, she devoted herself to the educationof her son, continuing her career as a professional writer.

Godwin Shelley, alias Mary Wollstonecraft, the creator of Frankenstein...
But why did Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein ?

In 1816, during a holiday at Lake Geneva, in Switzerland, with her new husband Percy, Lord Byron, Claire Clairmont and John Polidari, Lord Byron challenged the group to write the most frightening ghost story. Mary then had a nightmare and Frankenstein was born, but would take her almost 2 years to publish.
