9780062025814 The Lady and Her Monsters by Roseanne Motillo brings to life the fascinating times, startling science, and real-life horrors behind Mary Shelleyâ€™s gothic masterpiece, Frankenstein. Montillo recounts howâ€”at the intersection of the Romantic Age and the Industrial Revolutionâ€”Shelleyâ€™s Victor Frankenstein was inspired by actual scientists of the period: curious and daring iconoclasts who were obsessed with the inner workings of the human body and how it might be reanimated after death. With true-life tales of grave robbers, ghoulish experiments, and the ultimate in macabre researchâ€”human reanimationâ€”The Lady and Her Monsters is a brilliant exploration of the creation of Frankenstein, Mary Shelleyâ€™s horror classic.
