A Letter from Claire Clairemont

Almost Invincible is the story of Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein) and how her

life was coloured by the poisonous influence of a step-sister, Claire. Mary died in

February 1851. This is the letter Claire sent to Mary’s son Percy, after she heard of

the tragedy, and it illustrates her character well.
