Google Doodle: Mary Shelley’s 213th birthday

Whenever a special occasion comes up, Google is there to help celebrate in way of a Google Doodle on their homepage. The latest event to get this treatment is Mary Shelley’s 213th birthday, who as we know was a famous British novelist.

What better way to help celebrate such a person than to appear on Google’s homepage, and will no doubt make the younger audience more aware of her work — the most famous being Frankenstein – you only have to see how popular it made Pac-man with the younger audience. Just remember not to make the mistake; the creator was Frankenstein, not the monster that he created.

Mary Shelley (Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin) was born on 30 August 1797 and sadly died on 1 February 1851, making her 53 when she died after suffering a brain tumor. She was a well-respected writer when she died, but her novels became more popular after her passing. More details on Shelley can be found on Wikipedia.

Do you think that by appearing as a Google Doodle, Mary Shelley and other such novelist will get more reconnection in this digital age?
