Born in 1797, Mary Shelley's mother died when she was only 11 days old. Mary was then raised by her Father, who remarried when she was four, and thereafter the young Mary had a liberal but informal upbringing. At 17 she began the relationship with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley which was the bedrock of her life; although society viewed the unmarrieds somewhat differently. It was in this relationship that she nurtured and edited Shelley's verse and wrote, at 21, her signature work "Frankenstein" for which she is so well known. Her husband drowned when she was 25 which added further to the earlier loss of 3 of her 4 children. Beset with such great tragedy her life remained to be fulfilled but, at only 53, a brain tumour was to take her own life. However she left behind a wonderful collection of works of which 'The fortune Of Perkin Warbeck' is a rich and textured part

"The grand Napoleon of the realms of rhyme" Byron and history by Doucet Devin Fischer( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The texture of Byron's poems and the patterns of allusion within the prose commentary he supplied for them in the form of prefaces, dedications, notes, papers, and appendices display his commitment to an activist aesthetic, a partisan poetics, and the facts of history. I have positioned the four cantos of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, the two Venetian dramas, and the Siege cantos of Don Juan within the prose context Byron himself created for them, and, further, have situated his poems against the shifting background of political and literary events occurring as he was writing. Such placement suggests what the record of contemporary response confirms: Byron's poems were responses to historical events; his heroes and narrators, creations of the historical moment. The presence of history in Byron's poems and their explicit political purposes challenge Hazlitt's view of Byron as an isolated romantic egotist
