The Cambridge companion to Mary Shelley by Esther H Schor ( )
30 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 2,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Cambridge Companion to Mary Shelley, leading scholars discuss her work in several fascinating contexts: literary history, aesthetic and literary culture, the legacies of her parents William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and of course the life and afterlife of her most famous work Frankenstein.

The contributions are sophisticated but accessible, challenging but lucid, and are complemented by a chronology, a guide to further reading and a select filmography
The Other Mary Shelley : beyond Frankenstein by Audrey A Fisch ( Book )
9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Frankenstein has now been canonized in the Romantic classroom, less attention than ever has been paid to the considerable corpus of Mary Shelley's other works - in fact, until now the excitement of the last decade over feminist themes found in Frankenstein has helped to obscure the actual persona of its author.
