Mary Shelley

The Last Man

«The Last Man» is Mary Shelley’s apocalyptic fantasy of the end of human civilisation. Set in the late twenty-first century, the novel unfolds a sombre and pessimistic vision of mankind confronting inevitable destruction. Interwoven with her futuristic theme, Mary Shelley incorporates idealised portraits of Shelley and Byron, yet rejects Romanticism and its faith in art and nature. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797–1851) was the only daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft, author of «Vindication of the Rights of Woman», and the radical philosopher William Godwin. Her mother died ten days after her birth and the young child was educated through contact with her father’s intellectual circle and her own reading. She met Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1812; they eloped in July 1814.In the summer of 1816 she began her first and most famous novel, «Frankenstein». Three of her children died in early infancy and in 1822 her husband was drowned. Mary returned to England with her surviving son and wrote novels, short stories and accounts of her travels; she was the first editor of P.B.Shelley’s poetry and verse.

    Men love a prop so well, that they will lean on a pointed poisoned spear; and such was he, the impostor, who, with fear of hell for his scourge, most ravenous wolf, played the driver to a credulous flock.

    I spread the whole earth out as a map before me. On no one spot of its surface could I put my finger and say, here is safety.

    her eyes were not dark, but impenetrably deep; you seemed to discover space after space in their intellectual glance
