Vixens, Volcanoes, and Vipers: How Mary Shelley Wrote Frankenstein
Saturday, October 26 at 2 pm – click here to sign up online
This talk details the harrowing circumstances under which Mary Shelley conceived her most famous novel and one of literature’s most despicable title characters.
Corey Abate holds a PhD from New York University and has published numerous scholarly articles on the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Dr. Abate first came to learn of Mary Shelley’s visit to Villa Diodati, and what she had to endure leading up to that trip, when she was hired to be the research assistant for biographer Benita Eisler and her book on Lord Byron. Dr. Abate has been a proud resident of Morris County since 2000; for almost 20 years she has taught English in area private high schools until this fall, when she became Chair of the English Department at The Willow School, a progressive pre-K-8th grade school in Gladstone NJ.
This is a free CALL lecture, but registration is requested and can be done in person, online, or by phone at 973-635-0603.
