Mary Shelley in her times by Betty T Bennett ( )

"This collection of essays offers a more complete and complex picture of Mary Shelley, emphasizing the full range and significance of her writings in terms of her own era and ours.

Poetic form and British romanticism by Stuart Curran ( Book )
26 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and German and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Curran here confronts the popular stereotype that the Romantics either accepted or rejected previously established literary genres. He proposes rather that they adapted traditional poetic forms to suit their own democratic, secular, and sceptical ethos. This artistic merger of traditional genre with the tenets of Romanticism was a fruitful one, not only resulting in the revival of the ode and the sonnet, but also leading to the imaginative rethinking of major forms like the pastoral, the epic, and the romance which gave the movement its name

Valperga, or, The life and adventures of Castruccio, Prince of Lucca by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Valperga (1823), the novel Mary Shelley wrote after Frankenstein, is based on the life of Castruccio Castracani, the fourteenth-century Prince of Lucca. A brilliant soldier and cruel tyrant, he successfully commanded Ghibelline forces in Tuscany against the Guelphs, threatening Florence, their stronghold. Woven into the story of this historical conflict are the tragic destinies of two heroines: Euthanasia, Countess of Valperga, and Beatrice. Described by the author's father, William Godwin, as 'the jewel of the book', Beatrice is a heretic with whom Castruccio falls in love, while Euthanasia finds herself increasingly torn between loyalty to her Guelph roots and her passion for Castruccio."--BOOK JACKET
