Why Literature Matters: The Case of Mary Shelley

31 Oct from 18:00 to 19:30

John Cabot University in collaboration with the Keats-Shelley House Rome, is delighted to present our co-sponsored #FrankenReads event: the inaugural lecture in our Literature Matters Series given by esteemed poet and writer Professor Fiona Sampson, the author of In Search of Mary Shelley: the girl who wrote 'Frankenstein'.

In her words, "Mary Shelley's is a life that was shaped, possibly limited, yet arguably also redeemed by literature. Admittedly, she is a special case. Nevertheless, the true story of the precocious talent who produced two of our culture's most enduring archetypes - the overreaching scientist Frankenstein, and the not quite human he creates - has much to teach us about the writing life and what it can achieve."
