JULY This is a memorable anniversary for me on it I complete my three hundred and twenty third year br br The Wandering Jew certainly not More than eighteen centuries have passed over his head In comparison with him I am a very young Immortal br Am I then immortal This is a question which I have asked myself by day and night for now three hundred and three years and yet cannot answer it br br I detected a gray hair amidst my brown locks this very day that surely signifies decay Yet it may have remained concealed there for three hundred years for some persons have become entirely white headed before twenty years of age br br I will tell my story and my reader shall judge for me I will tell my story and so contrive to pass some few hours of a long eternity become so wearisome to me For ever Can it be to live for ever, A futuristic story of tragic love and of the gradual extermination of the human race by plague i The Last Man i is Mary Shelley s most important novel after Frankenstein With intriguing portraits of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron the novel offers a vision of the future that expresses a reaction against Romanticism and demonstrates the failure of the imagination and of art to redeem the doomed characters, Mary Shelley s Matilda suppressed for over a century tells the story of a woman alienated from society by the incestuous passion of her father, b Surely never such had existed before a misshapen dwarf with squinting eyes distorted features and a body deformed till it became a horror to behold b br br Having squandered his wealth the feckless Guido returns home to claim the hand of the celestial Juliet but finds himself censured by her father Petulant at his chastisement his Byronic temperament gets the better of him and he is punished with banishment Plotting his revenge he witnesses a mighty tempest and from the raging sea emerges a strange figure Although he is initially repelled by the dwarfish form before him the stranger soon makes him an offer he can t refuse but by surrendering his identity and selling his soul to this mysterious creature Guido makes yet another fatal error br br A macabre sinister and supernatural tale Mary Shelley s i Transformation i is a masterpiece of Gothic writing It is accompanied by i The Mortal Immortal i and i The Evil Eye i two further stories of the supernatural both of which display the perfection of Shelley s literary craft
