Abstract

O presente estudo analisa a décima “A shovel of his ashes took” (1816), que Percy Bysshe Shelley terá composto após o famoso desafio de Lord Byron, na Villa Diodati. Interpretamos esse texto-fragmento companheiro de Frankenstein como um irónico poema-workshop intertextual em torno da estética do terror e do medo góticos, que dialoga com outros textos do casal Shelley e convida o leitor a continuar o enredo sugerido pelo sujeito lírico.

This study deals with “A shovel of his ashes took” (1816), which Percy Bysshe Shelley might have composed after Lord Byron’s famous challenge, at Villa Diodati, as an ironic intertextual workshop-poem about gothic fear and terror aesthetics. We analyse how this short Frankenstein’s companion dialogues with several other texts written by the Shelleys and how it invites the reader to continue its short plot suggested by the poet.
