Author Biography - Mary Shelley

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) was born in London, to her father the writer William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, an influential social campaigner who died 11 days after the birth of her daughter. Mary's early life was unconventional and by the age of 16 she eloped with the then-married Percy Bysshe Shelley. Amongst their friends were Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Lord Byron, the latter of whom offered the challenge to Mary to write a ghost story which later became Frankenstein. Fiona Sampson (foreword) has been published in more than 30 languages. Her publications include 27 volumes of poetry, criticism and philosophy of language. From 2005-12 Sampson was the Editor of Poetry Review; she is now Editor of Poem and Professor of Poetry at the University of Roehampton, where she is the Director of the Roehampton Poetry Centre. She's also a Fellow and Council Member of the Royal Society of Literature, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Fellow of the English Association and Trustee of the Wordsworth Trust. Recent books include a new edition of Percy Bysshe Shelley for Faber and Coleshill (poems) for Chatto. Her new book, In Search of Mary Shelley: The Girl Who Wrote Frankenstein (Profile Books) celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein.
