In Mary Shelley's lifetime, six of her novels and two travel journals were published. The Last Man (1826) appeared anonymously, as being 'By the author of Frankenstein'. Like the earlier work, it carried on its tide page a motto from Paradise Lost, this time the grim 42 Let no man seek Henceforth to be foretold what shall befall Him or his children. Novels at this period were not the major literary force they were later to become; the luminaries of the eighteen-forties were still below the horizon.
Victor destroys what he had begun, the monster discovers the breach of contract, utters his direst threat - i shall be with you on your wedding-night' - and disappears. The rest is a tale of flight and pursuit, punctuated by death and retribution, with everyone's hand turned against the wretched monster. This section contains much of Godwin's thinking, and of his novel, Caleb Williams, which, as its preface announced, was a review of 'the modes of domestic and unrecorded despotism by which man becomes the destroyer of man'.
Adrian and Verney eventually lead the few English who survive from England to France. By then, one of Verney's sons is dead; his wife dies during a snowstorm. Fifty survivors, their number dwindling, move southwards from Dijon. Mary Shelley leaves not a wither unwrung. images of destruction, pictures of despair, the procession of the last triumph of death, shall be drawn before thee,' she warns her gende reader. Adrian and Verney, with two children, Clara and little Evelyn, reach Italy. Typhus claims Evelyn by Lake Como.
