no image has ever described my life quite so well
-via The Literacy Site
I am haunted by all the editions of books that are prettier than the ones I already own.
Here’s my final for the Ladies of Literature zine project, organized by the wonderful Arielle Jovellanos. I chose Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley - the author of Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus at age 19.
Mary was the daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft, prominent feminist, and William Godwin, prominent anarchist. Quite a bit of those influences manifest in her works and letters, as she obsessively studied the works of both of her parents throughout her life.
