Writing Alongside Mary Shelley & Percy Bysshe Shelley [Deborah Woodard]
All Levels | We’ll read the poetry of major Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, as well as the original 1818 version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. We’ll see how the Shelleys shared a common vision of social and political liberation and explore the ways in which their visions differed. Weekly readings and writing prompts.
Texts (available from Elliott Bay Book Company Company): Percy Bysshe Shelley: Selected Poetry and Prose (Penguin Classics, 2016) and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (Bantam, 2003).
