Description

The Lady and Her Monsters by Roseanne Motillo brings to life the fascinating times, startling science, and real-life horrors behind Mary Shelley&;s gothic masterpiece, Frankenstein.

Montillo recounts how&;at the intersection of the Romantic Age and the Industrial Revolution&;Shelley&;s Victor Frankenstein was inspired by actual scientists of the period: curious and daring iconoclasts who were obsessed with the inner workings of the human body and how it might be reanimated after death.

With true-life tales of grave robbers, ghoulish experiments, and the ultimate in macabre research&;human reanimation&;The Lady and Her Monsters is a brilliant exploration of the creation of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley&;s horror classic.
