Mary Shelley wrote her second novel, Mathilda, or Matilda, on the common Romantic themes of incest and suicide, between August 1819 and February 1820. Narrating from her deathbed, Matilda tells the story of her unnamed father's confession of incestuous love for her, followed by his suicide by drowning; her relationship with a gifted young poet called Woodville fails to reverse Matilda's emotional withdrawal or prevent her lonely death. - Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
