Mary Shelley and Her Plague Masterpiece

Eileen Hunt Botting on Mary Shelley

Our new podcast features Eileen Hunt Botting, professor at the University of Notre Dame. She is a political theorist and intellectual historian and the author of, among other books, the upcoming Artificial Life After Frankenstein. We spoke with Professor Botting about Mary Shelley and her least-known but perhaps most far-seeing novel The Last Man, a post-apocalyptic tale of a world depopulated by plague.
