Summary

The Last Man is a politically engaged vision of civilization=s end. It reverberates particularly strongly for the late 20th-century reader, not only because of its millennial overtones but also because of its parallels between the plague that Shelley depicts and the AIDS epidemic of our own time. It is a novel that rival's Frankenstein in the rich profusion of ideas it gives rise to in the reader.

Appendices include a map of Lionel Verney's world, literature on the theme of The Last Man, background to the Sibyl's cave, historical and literary accounts of the plague, excerpts from Mary Shelley's poetry, Godwin, Malthus, Wollstonecraft, Burke, PB Shelley, Rambles in Germany and Italy, and reviews.
