Abstract

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) married Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (1797-1851) in 1816, and their writings carried on the political engagement of Mary’s parents. Mary Shelley’s most famous work, Frankenstein (1818), shows the influence of both her parents’ thinking. Percy’s The Cenci uses the lurid story of a sixteenth-century Italian family to address a central human dilemma: should a moral individual employ violence to overthrow tyranny?
