Shelley, Mary: The Mortal Immortal. V1. 11 Jun 2012

Mary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin; 30 August 1797 – 1 February 1851) was an English novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft.

"The Mortal Immortal" covers the kind of emotional territory later explored in Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray." Its commentary on human life presents itself through the activities of the alchemist and his apprentice, the story's protagonist. Shelley assumes that, while it is natural to fall in love during one's youth, it is also natural for the body to grow old and succumb to death. Cornelius tries to conquer nature by remaining perpetually young, while Winzy wants to fall out of love perrmanently. Both of them challenge the natural order and fail.
