This paper explores the interconnection between supernatural events, the body, and gender in Shelley’s “Transformation” and “The Mortal Immortal.” In “Transformation,” the supernatural event in which Guido, the main character of this story, exchanges his body for a dwarf’s body and wealth forces him to experience what it is like to be a person whose life is defined and confined by the body. This experience leads him to repent of his past follies caused by his masculine pride and reform himself. But Guido’s paler cheek and little bent body, the reminder of the fatal fight between Guido and the dwarf, continue to draw attention to the violence of the hierarchical gender relations. In “The Mortal Immortal,” the supernatural event-through which Winzy, the main character of this story, gains immortality-brings out the stark contrast between Winzy’s immortal male body and Bertha’s vulnerable female body. At a glance, this contrast seems to show the triumph of the masculine over the feminine. But his everlasting youth forces them to move to a foreign country, which entails emotional suffering. Winzy loses all that binds him to humanity when Bertha, his beloved wife, dies. Moreover, his immortal body turns into a cage for his soul, which makes him weary of himself. His weariness and thirst for freedom imply that the masculine becomes trapped when it loses the connection with the feminine.
