Interestingly they take place in aristocratic estates, so by extension the teeming city is no flesh pot of vice and depravity, it is a place of sociability while the aristocratic family is not to be taken as a role model as it's wealth enables fearsome passions, by implication the intimate bourgeois family is wholesome and proper, and novels are an important instrument of education and socialisation ( particularly in regard to the emotions) - the characters here only seem to read poetry and that does them no good at all.

It tells the story of a young woman whose mother died in her childbirth—just as Shelly’s own mother died after hers—and whose relationship with her bereaved father becomes sexually charged as he conflates her with his lost wife, while she becomes involved with a handsome poet.

Though Mary Shelley wrote Mathilda in 1819, directly after the publication of Frankenstein, her father and publisher, William Godwin, refused to print it. Clearly Mary Shelley understood these things very well and while the plot of the story might seem a bit fanciful to a modern reader there are enough elements of truth that make it still ring true. A few things about the story made me uncomfortable and I found irrelevant especially that have to do with Mathilda's relationship with her father. Faubert's lucid and elegant introduction situates Mathilda in the context of Shelley's earlier Frankenstein (1818) and later novella The Mourner (1830) and discusses its troubled publication history and recent critical reception. After a difficult childhood under a demanding stepmother, she ran off to the Continent at age 17 with her father’s wealthy—and married—benefactor, the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

This was Mary Shelley’s second work after Frankenstein, and it’s really interesting to see how similar it is in thematic preoccupations and how it draws on her own life: absent fathers, dead mothers, nature as parent, books as parent, very close father-daughter relationships, human society as false and corrupting, human love and kindness as essential, the city as oppressive compared to the freedom of the countryside, the pleasures and pains of solitude. (Frankenstein abandons his creature, as does the father of Mathilda, the characters in the Last Man grow up as children of nature - alone and parentless- wild offspring) Considering that Shelley lost her own children very early and also lost her mother and had an interesting relationship with her father, it's not really all that surprising that these obsessions should emerge in her writing in this manner.

It's a shame, the story in itself is quite interesting but I just couldn't stand the over-dramatized and over-poetic dialogs and actually later on most of the writing just annoyed me.
