#this man has been forced to disguise his identity so many times that he barely knows who the real jean valjean is anymore #is jean valjean the merciful beggar who gives alms? the selfless mayor who lifted a man from under a cart? #or has jean valjean been dead ever since the spiteful convict tore up his yellow passport and scattered the pieces into the wind? #he was born with the name jean valjean but what is left to him now when that name is forever damned to the galleys? #he lives under the knowledge that no amount of good works will ever be able to pay off the legal fate he faces #in the end it is not javert who condemns him#or his lost sister or his beautiful daughter cosette or even that loaf of bread from so long ago #what truly haunts him are simply two words: jean valjean #and that fundamental curse is one that he is never able to shake off until his dying day #:(
Mary Shelley is perhaps best known as the author of the novel Frankenstein. Written when she was nineteen and published when she was twenty-one, Frankenstein is regarded as the first true work of science-fiction and is so influential across literature and popular culture that it created an entire genre of horror stories, plays, and films.
Mary wrote the story while on a trip to Geneva with Lord Byron, John Polidori and her future husband Percy Shelley. The four had a competition to see who could write the best horror story, and Mary wrote the novel after dreaming of a scientist who created life only to be horrified by the result.
While Frankenstein is her best known work, Shelley was a prolific writer during her lifetime. Her work was heavily influenced by Romantic ideals and her commitment to political reform. Today, Shelley is regarded as a leading Romantic figure and significant for her political voice as a woman and a liberal.
