neighboring wood, and meet me beside its shady fountain p33 Death mysterious, ill visaged friend of weak humanity Why alone of all mortals have you cast me from your sheltering fold Oh, for the peace of the grave the deep silence of the iron bound tomb that thought would cease to work in my brain, and my heart beat nowith emotions varied only by new forms of sadness And theI live, theI dread death, even while I abhor life Such an enigma is man born to perish when he wars, as I do, against the established laws of his nature but, oh the weight of never ending time the tedious passage of the still succeeding hours Sometimes I fancy age advancing upon me One grey hair I have found Fool do I lament Yes, the fear of age and death often creeps coldly into my heart and theI live, theI dread death, even while I abhor lifeThe story opens with JULY 16, 1833 This is a memorable anniversary for me on it I complete my three hundred and twenty third year The Wandering Jew certainly not More than eighteen centuries have passed over his head In comparison with him, I am a very young Immortal.Am I, then, immortal This is a question which I have asked myself, by day and night, for now three hundred and three years, and yet cannot answer it.I detected a gray hair amidst my brown locks this very day that surely signifies decay Yet it may have remained concealed there for three hundred years for some persons have become entirely white headed before twenty years of age.I will tell my story, and my reader shall judge for me I will tell my story, and so contrive to pass some few hours of a long eternity, become so wearisome to me For ever Can it be to live for ever.Mary Shelley s THE EVIL EYEWhy hasn t this been made into a film All the elements are there My favourite lines are He could read and write Greek, and a book was often stowed beside his pistols in his girdle p54 Desideratum something that is needed or wanted p58 But what was the ill that had occurred Unapparent was it yet but the spirit of evil is most fatal when unseen p60 Her worst fears were thus confirmed her maternal heart, lately so joyous, became the abode of despair p62 63 What is there so fearful as the expectation of evil tidings delayed Misery is awelcome visitant when she comes in her darkest guise and wraps us in perpetual black, for then the heart no longer sickens with disappointed hope p68 with the swiftness of a torrent fed by the thawing of the snows in spring, he dashed down he steep hill p71 The Evil Eye is a piece of short fiction written by Mary Shelley and published in The Keepsake for 1830 The tale is set in Greece and is about a man known as Dmitri of the Evil Eye Dmitri s wife was murdered and his daughter abducted many years before the story begins Dmitri s friend Katusthius Ziani enlists him to help recover his rightful inheritance, and during their journey they abduct a boy whom Dmitri discovers to be his grandson Shelley captivates me as a writer to organize words in such a powerful manner gains admiration Several details within this short story are particular to Shelley as a writer, which make the writing all thecompelling An initial concept that struck me as being inherently feminist regards Bertha and her depiction therein Despite describing her as coquettish, fickle, and inherently insipid, the narrator loves her still and out of no abject obligation To appreciate a woman s realness rat Shelley captivates me as a writer to organize words in such a powerful manner gains admiration Several details within this short story are particular to

coquettish, fickle, and inherently insipid, the narrator loves her still and out of no abject obligation To appreciate a woman s realness rather than an idealized version of said woman would have made our narrator a unique character at the time In this brief story, the reader can also glimpse Shelley s irreligious lifeand its influence on her writing through references to death and the spirit Toward its end, The Mortal Immortal confronts the narrator s unnaturally long life and attitude towards it, lamenting, TheI live, theI dread death, even while I abhor life Herein our narrator makes no statement about wishing to die to join a maker or ascend to some version of heaven, but he rather comes to understand that even in the face of a miserable immortality, living is still preferable to ceasing to exist In a similar vein, our narrator equates the act of dying to a transmutation of energy rather than the aforementioned ascendance to heaven by wishing himself to be soaring from this dim earth to a spherecongenial to his immortal essence This description of the death of a body calls to mind matter and energy being returned to the earth or reincarnation rather than a direct ascension or joining with gods I doubt that I will ever cease to be amazing by the will and wonder of Mary Shelley This was a very interesting story and it has very many different psychoanalytical aspects to it Bertha was very toxic to Winzie and she has a privileged life but when things turned back she went back to where she came from so it almost seems like she s taking advantage of Winzie and his folks Also, she is very vain about her appearance as well Rather than make what she has in her life, she just complained the whole time. Topics such as death and the fear of dying are ones which I always jump on Shelley has beautifully yet hauntingly described the inner turmoil of a human bound to immortality It makes us reflect on our own mortality and how having a life expectancy makes life all theworthwhile. Gothic horror I listened to an audio version of The Mortal Immortal short story read by Shaun Dooley The plot is not very plausible but is dramatic. Shelley will always be a love of mine, but this tale The Mortal Immortal was merely middling compared to other works Excellent gothic story telling, but the whole tale was delivered as an after thought of an immortal, thereby reducing any of the stakes or suspense A fun fall read, but not a work I will revisit. {READ KINDLE} ò The Mortal Immortal, and the Evil Eye Ö Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley nee Godwin was an English romantic gothic novelist She received an excellent education, which was unusual for girls at the time She never went to school, but she was taught to read and write by Louisa Jones, and then educated in a broad range of subjects by her father, who gave her free access to his extensive library In particular, she was encouraged to write stories, and one of these early works Mounseer Nongtongpaw was published by the Godwin Company s Juvenile Library when she was only eleven One night, perhaps attributable to Galvani s report, Mary had a waking dream she recounted the episode in this way What terrified me will terrify others and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow This nightmare served as the basis for the novel that she entitled Frankenstein or, The Modern PrometheusAmongst her other works are The Last Man, Proserpine, Midas and Notes to the Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley The Happy Child: Changing the Heart of Education and the Evil Eye Ö Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley nee Godwin was an English romantic gothic novelist She received an excellent education Revenge of the Wannabes which was unusual for girls at the time She never went to school The Jewish Comix Anthology but she was taught to read and write by Louisa Jones Digital Yesterdays and then educated in a broad range of subjects by her father Slither who gave her free access to his extensive library In particular Building A Practical Backyard Cob Hut: Building a Simple Dwelling with Cob.
