She was born Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, the daughter of the eminent feminist Mary Wollstonecraft and the political philosopher William Godwin, who raised Mary after her mother’s untimely death. At 15, Mary fell in love with the poet Percy Shelley, a frequent visitor to her father’s house. At 16, she ran away with Shelley to France. At 18, while in Switzerland with Shelley, she began her masterpiece, Frankenstein, publishing it when she was 20. Their brief eight years together were marked by tragedy: the suicide of Shelley’s first wife, the suicide of Mary’s half-sister, the deaths of three of their infant children, and finally Percy Shelley’s drowning in 1822. At 25, Mary returned to England to pursue a career as an editor and author, which she did successfully until her death. In the summer-less summer of 1816, Percy and Mary (along with Mary’s step-sister Claire Clairmont) rented accommodations near Lord Byron, on Lake Geneva. The close-knit group would often spend candle-lit evenings discussing potential literary projects, while fierce storms raged across the lake outside their windows of their villa. *Property of artist.
