In 1818, a young woman holidaying in Geneva played a game of telling ghost stories. Her name was Mary Shelley, and the tale she wove that evening became one of our most enduring and best-loved novels, Frankenstein.

200 years since it was first published, Professor Marie Mulvey-Roberts will explore with us just what it is about Shelley’s masterpiece that was so enduring, as well as take us on a journey through the gothic and women’s relationship to this fascinating genre.

Marie Mulvey-Roberts is reader in literary studies in the English department of the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. She is the author of Gothic Immortals: The Fiction of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross and editor of many books.

Part of Bristol Women’s Literature Festival. The Bristol Women’s Literature Festival is presented in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas, Watershed and Bristol Women’s Voice.
