Abstract

Mary Shelley’s late novel, Lodore, offers an intriguing reconfiguration of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and interrogates the issues of gender identification, the influence of popular media, and the roles of individuals within a family, by shifting the Romantic fascination from Milton’s Satan to Milton’s Eve.
