Shelley’s Ghost video competition

Alison Prince, Web Manager

Shelley’s Ghost tells the story of how the descendents of one of our greatest literary families worked hard to shape their posthumous reputations and widen appreciation of their work. Why do the works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley, William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft still appeal to us today? We are running this video competition to find out.

To enter, simply make a short video of yourself performing a text by one of our four featured authors and, importantly, tell us why you chose the author or the work that you did. Choose your own text or here are some suggestions.

Our favourite video will win a copy of the exhibition book, Shelley’s Ghost: Reshaping the Image of a Literary Family, signed by the authors Stephen Hebron and Elizabeth C. Denlinger.

    Obviously the first entry posted above is by Ms Alison Prince herself and was meant as an example otherwise the total number of entries would have been four and not three as mentioned in the bodleian libraries twitter message. In the address mentioned there the entries are three but the first entry present here is simply not there.
