The definitive account of Mary Shelley's life from her own pen is now available in a single softcover volume. Here we see even more vividly than in her letters her sympathetic identification with nature and her struggles with--and ultimate surrender to--the lifelong depression that followed her husband's death. Supplementing the text are extensive annotations, a chronology, a thorough index, maps of the Shelleys' travels, portraits of acquaintances, appendices giving biographical accounts of the members of Mary Shelley's social circles in Pisa and London, the Shelleys' reading lists, and a bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'immaculate editing' Notes and Queries
'A wealth of biographical information is digested into footnotes and supports the particularity of the journals. Moreover, the text itself has been elegantly, and in some respects, lavishly produced. It reflects credit on Oxford' Notes and Queries
'Feldman and Scott-Kilvert have made an invaluable contribution to Romantic studies as a whole in their painstaking annotation of this tricky and often obscure document ... this is a fine edition of a text which has been unavailable for too long ... Its editors must be commended for having produced so rich and meticulous an annotation of it - one which will be welcomed by Shelley scholars and interested readers alike. Angela Leighton, University of Hull. Review of English Studies
'This is the first accurate and complete edition of the Journals, with carefully restored passages and corrected misreadings ... the editors have done an admirable job in making the Journal accessible to readers.' Keats-Shelley Journal
