British Women Romantic Poets, 1789-1832: Links to Works. The British Women Romantic Poets Project - UC Davis General Library. Ed. Charlotte Payne. January 2008. <>. 19 February 2008     

 This site provides e-texts (in html, xml and sgml formats) of the poetry of mostly obscure women writers from the Romantic period. Access to these works provides additional insight to the interests of women writers of the era leading up to and beyond Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. VM


A Glossary of Literary Gothic Terms. Georgia Southern University. Ed. Douglass A. Thomson. May 2001.  <>. 19 February 2008                                         This site has both brief and detailed definitions of the terminology associated with Gothic literature. This list compiled by students from GSU is an overview of terms and concepts which provide an understanding of the important aspects of Gothic literature. VM   

Hail Mary Shelley. Ed. Martin Moore. 5 September 2004.  <>. 17 February 2008                             This is an interesting site that suggests considering the novel Frankenstein as a machine and the 1831 preface an owner’s manual. One of its more unique aspects is in its naming of Frankenstein’s resurrected being as “the Daemon” rather than monster or the Creature. VM

 Kashihara, Tomoko. Solitude and Deformity: A Feminist Study of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. 1999. <>. 18 February 2008                              This link to a seminar paper is a feminist perspective that uses the life of Mary Wollstonecraft as a way to understand how her daughter, a girl of nineteen, could have written a groundbreaking novel.  This essay examines the implications of the Creature’s plight in relation to women’s roles in history.

Lovecraft, H.P. Supernatural Horror in Literature. December 2007.  <,_H.P._-_Supernatural_Horror_in_Literature.pdf>. 21 February 2008                                                                                                                                                         This link not only provides the opportunity to examine reasons for the appeal of Gothic and supernatural literature through the eyes of one of the greatest writers of the genre, but also the opportunity to discover some of the obscure supernatural works, including those by Defoe and Smollett, that were of interest to the Stephen King of his time.

Norton, Rictor. Books of Rictor Norton "Mistress of Udolpho: the Life of Anne Radcliffe". 4 November 2000. <>.  18 February 2008                                                                This site provides information about one of the most popular writers of the female Gothic novel using excerpts from a fairly recent biography.  This is not the best site for an in-depth study of Radcliffe, but adequate for understanding her in context within the Romantic period and the Gothic genre. VM

Responses to and Adaptations of Frankenstein in Film and Elsewhere. Ed. Melissa J. Sites. December 1999.  <>. 18 February 2008                                                                                                                                                         This site is a selective group of films and television shows that were inspired by or are adaptations of Frankenstein.  The weakness of this site is that the list is far too limited and not up to date. The positive aspect to this is that it will no doubt inspire the production of a more current and exhaustive list. VM
