The Man Who Wrote Frankenstein

''The Man Who Wrote Frankenstein'' is a 2007 book written and published by John Lauritsen, which promotes the fringe theory that the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, not his wife Mary Shelley, is the real author of ''Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus'' (1818). The book also argues that the novel "has consistently been underrated and misinterpreted", and that its dominant theme is "male love." Lauritsen maintains that handwriting cannot be used to determine the actual author of ''Frankenstein''. His work received positive reviews in gay publications. However, some commentators in other publications rejected Lauritsen's views and supported the conventional view that ''Frankenstein'' was written by Mary Shelley. Provided by Wikipedia
