After various misfortunes, Mary Wollstonecraft married Godwin and bore him a daughter, Mary. This Mary grew up to write Frankenstein when still in her teens. Her novel is unique. But behind every unique work stand the predecessors to which it owes a cultural debt. In the case of Frankenstein we need to look at the Gothic fashion from which it emerged. Edmund Burke's essay on The Sublime and the Beautiful appeared in 1756. It became an arbiter of taste for many decades. Its influence lingers today.

The world was alive with news of itself. These influences show in Erasmus Darwin's poems. In The Loves of the Plants (with its Fuseli decoration engraved by William Blake), he makes reference to the Antarctic and tells how Slow o'er the printed snows with silent walk Huge shaggy forms across the twilight stalk a couplet which has left its imprint on that very Gothic poem, Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner, when the accursed ship is driven to the Southern Pole: And through the drifts the snowy clifts Did send a dismal sheen: Nor shapes of men nor beasts we ken The ice was all between.

In 1765 The Castle of Otranto was published pseudonymously. So popular was it that the author, Horace Walpole, admitted his identity in a preface to the second edition. The Castle of Otranto is established as the earliest Gothic novel. ' On a June night in 1764, Walpole had a nightmare in which he saw a gigantic hand clad in armour, gripping the bannister of a great staircase. When he woke, he began writing his novel. Walpole was an antiquarian. His most lively monument is not Otranto but Strawberry Hill, his residence, his own conception, built in Gothic style, which is to say, in imitation of a medieval style.
