The BBC's Rebecca Laurence on Mary Shelley


An interesting article at bbc.com by Rebecca Laurence about how Mary Shelley's novel continues to shape culture some 200 years after it was published. Laurence notes that an anxiety about science and technology is as true today as in Shelley's day. After you read it, maybe you'll want to put a sticker of this incredibly influential writer on the window of your car. We have Shelley in B&W and color, for $5.95 each, shipping included. (Her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, was also incredibly influential--we have her, too.)
