Mary Shelley’s “Transformation”

The Lewes Public Library Spoken Word Society and Shakespeare Festival presents a reading of Mary Shelley’s “Transformation” by Dr. James Keegan.

Shelley’s short story “Transformation” was first published in The Keepsake in 1831. Guido, the narrator, tells the story of his encounter with a strange, misshapen creature when he was a young man living in Genoa, Italy, around the turn of the fifteenth century. He makes a deal with the creature to exchange bodies, but the creature does not reappear at the appointed time to take his own body back. This macabre, sinister, and supernatural tale is a masterpiece of Gothic writing.

Seating is limited and registration is required.
