Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Exploring the frightful milieu in which Frankenstein was written, Roseanne Montillo recounts how Mary Shelley s Victor Frankenstein mirrored actual scientists of the period. Montillo paints a rich portrait of Shelley and her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and their contemporaries, as well as their friend Lord Byron. Intellectually curious, they were artists, poets, and philosophers, united in captivation with the occultists and the daring scientists risking their reputations and their immortal souls to advance our understanding of human anatomy and medicine.Juxtaposing monstrous mechanization and rising industrialism with the sublime beauty and decadence of the legendary Romantics who defined the age, Montillo takes us into a world where poets become legends in salons and boudoirs; where fame-hungry doctors conduct shocking performances for rabid, wide-eyed audiences; and where maniacal body snatchers secretly toil in castle dungeons.
