Encoding Shelley’s Handwriting

The Shelley-Godwin Archive is currently encoding the manuscript for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, based on the transcription provided by Charles Robinson. He, and other editors of the Bodleian Shelley Manuscripts and Manuscripts of the Younger Romantics, will provide original files to the project team and assist with corrections to printed transcriptions. Textual scholars and students alike will be particularly interested in the collaborative relationship between Mary and Percy in the text. Our encoding schema will distinguish between Mary’s and Percy’s hand, allowing one to search for specific contributions from each Shelley.
