Read full description of the books:



Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) es bien conocida por su famosa novela ‘Frankenstein, o el moderno Prometeo’ (1818), pero también escribió algunos buenos relatos, que han quedado eclipsados por su obra maestra. La mayoría de sus cuentos góticos tienen relación con pasiones desatadas y sentimientos arrebatados, rodeados, aunque no todos, de algún elemento fantástico. Y son estos últimos cuentos, los que tienen que ver con lo sobrenatural, los que más me han gustado de la presente antología.

La Transformación. Guido, el protagonista, nos relata el pacto diabólico al que tuvo que ceder para no caer en la ruina total. Excelente relato, el mejor de la recopilación. Imprescindible.

Historia de pasiones. Relato de corte medieval, centrado en la lucha de dos facciones por el poder.

Roger Dodsworth. Con el subtítulo de El inglés reanimado, narra el descubrimiento de un hombre enterrado vivo en el hielo, y su posterior resurrección al cabo de lo años.

El Mortal Inmortal. El protagonista nos narra lo que le aconteció siendo ayudante de un alquimista. Gran relato.

El heredero de Mondolfo. De nuevo un relato de corte medieval, al más puro estilo gótico de la época.

Ferdinando Eboli. Nuevo relato ambientado en Italia, con una joven acosado por un rufián.

El sueño. Otra muestra clásica de cuento gótico, al que le falta un toque sobrenatural.

En resumen, lo mejor ‘La Transformación’, ‘El Mortal Inmortal’ y ‘Roger Dodsworth’. Los demás, prescindibles.

Read information about the author

Ebook O Mortal Imortal: Contos Sobrenaturais read Online! Mary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft.

Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels. After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein. It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality, that a full-length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley's letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published.

The well-meaning attempts of Mary Shelley's son and daughter-in-law to "Victorianise" her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a more conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest. Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley's works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression.

The eclipse of Mary Shelley's reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement. She was seen as a one-novel author, if that. In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value. Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated. Shelley's recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized; after Percy's death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions: "I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea". Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.
