Call Me Watkins

A podcast about English literature texts for senior high students.

I am a teacher of senior English and Literature in Melbourne, Australia but have also taught at schools in New South Wales and in Oxford in the UK. If you're wondering about the title of the podcast, it's a reference to my name, Mrs Watkins and what many regard as the best opening line to a book: "Call me Ishmael" from Herman Melville's "Moby Dick".

This episode seeks to provide background information on the life of Mary Shelley, until the time she wrote 'Frankenstein or A Modern Prometheus'. It covers biographical information as well as the historical context of the novel.
