Reviews:
  • Olma
This book provides a fascinating look into the life of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly. By reading actual letters written by Mary, to various important people in her life, you gain access to what her life outside the realm of literary circles was like. The author of this book adds interesting conjecture as to what the content of the letters means when clarity is needed or when certain facts aren't available. If you are interested in Mary's life & are looking for more than just a biography, "Selected Letters of" has much to offer. One star demerit for too little information from the time of her visit to Lord Byron at Lake Geneva in the Summer of 1816. Maybe there are fewer letters available from that time. But that's the time frame I am most interested in.
  • Steelcaster
This book of letters offers far more insight to the mind and heart of Mary Shelley than any of the biographies out there. The letters to her husband Shelley, Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, Sir Walter Scott, and others mirror her most intimate thoughts and routines of her daily life. Her voice is present in every line.
