Was ‘Frankenstein’ Really About Childbirth?

Was ‘Frankenstein’ Really About Childbirth? | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

The last notes that Wollstonecraft wrote to Godwin are included in the exhibition“Shelley’s Ghost: The Afterlife of a Poet,” which began last year at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and has now come to the New York Public Library. On display are numerous artifacts both personal and literary from the lives of the Shelleys, including manuscript pages from the notebook in which Mary wrote Frankenstein (with editing in the margins by her husband), which have never before been shown publicly in the United States. But it was Wollstonecraft’s scribbled note, in which she referred to her baby as “the animal”— the same word that the scientist in Frankenstein would use to describe his own notorious creation—that gave me pause.

O Gótico feminino na Literatura Brasileira: um estudo de Ânsia Eterna, de Júlia Lopes de Almeida (Ana Paula Santos) | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
"Desde a sua origem na Inglaterra do século XVIII, a ficção gótica contou com uma significativa contribuição de escritoras. Da relação entre o Gótico e a escrita feminina originou-se uma tradição ficcional que Ellen Moers (1976) nomeou de "Gótico feminino". A adoção de uma perspectiva aliada aos interesses da mulher trouxe para o Gótico horrores específicos:…

A brief response to ‘Post-Horror’

I’m as guilty as anyone for bemoaning the ‘same-old shit’ of certain subgenres of horror films. In fact, I’m fairly sure I’ve bemoaned such a thing on this very website (or at least in its previous, Brutal as Hell, guise). I’ve come to realise, however, that if there’s one thing more tiresome than yet another…
