John Polidori’s ghost story was eventually published as Ernestus Berchtold; or, The Modern Oedipus in 1819.

Shelley’s use of a now-outmoded scientific theory does not, however, mean that her book is not relevant to the science of today. The example of Erasmus Darwin should suffice to remind us that a vitalist could be progressive in other ways.
