Writing Alongside Mary Shelley & Percy Bysshe Shelley

All Levels | We’ll read the poetry of major Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, as well as the original 1818 version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. We’ll see how the Shelleys shared a common vision of social and political liberation and explore the ways in which their visions differed. Weekly readings and writing prompts.

Texts (available from Elliott Bay Book Company Company): Percy Bysshe Shelley: Selected Poetry and Prose (Penguin Classics, 2016) and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (Bantam, 2003).

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
