Mary Shelley’s great novel “Frankenstein: or the Modern Prometheus” was first published 200 years ago in January 1818.
To help celebrate this landmark anniversary, we were delighted to host Miranda Seymour - author of the definitive Mary Shelley biography - who in a fascinating talk explored the writing of the novel and the intricacies of Shelley’s life. With readings from actor Isobel Laidler the evening (taking place on 25th January 2018) shone a light on the personality behind one of literature’s great classics.Miranda Seymour.
