Bringing Frankenstein to Life

“As night falls this Halloween, a new creation will come to life — an electrifying new digital archive that sheds light on the genesis of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.The Shelley-Godwin Archive will make available online a collection of digitized manuscripts of Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, offering scholars, students, and the public an opportunity to probe the connections and collaborations within England’s “first family of writers.”  Created by scholars, curators, and information scientists from the New York Public Library, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), and the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford, this new scholarly resource was made possible by a $300,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).” (via National Endowment for the Humanities)
