TALK: Professor Fiona Sampson

Writer, poet, critic and broadcaster and of our new Women’s Library Curators – Professor Fiona Sampson talks about her new biography of Mary Shelley, which was recently serialised on BBC Radio 4.

Not only is this year the bicentenary of the publication of Shelley’s celebrated novel Frankenstein; the title was also included in Georgiana Verney’s choices for her Women’s Library of c. 1860.
