Review:

""The Last Man" created an entirely new genre, compounded of the domestic romance, the Gothic extravaganza, and the sociological novel. . . . İMary Shelley's¨ most interesting, if not her most consummate work."-Muriel Spark. "A fascinating . . . novel-romance on a timely subject."-"Studies in English Literature." "An absorbing roman clef, İit¨ develops one of the major themes of romantic art, that of spiritual isolation, and . . . treats it in a unique way."-"The Year's Work in English Studies."

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
