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

From the moment he could read, Byron admitted, history had been his "grand passion." Both the public record of his poetry and the private record of his letters and journals support the truth of this confession. When Byron imposed form upon what he called in Don Juan his "materials," he relied not only upon first-hand observations made in the course of his travels, but also upon notions of history derived from the Greek and Roman authors, the works of the French philosophes, the histories of Hume, Gibbon, and Robertson, and the writings of Burke, de Stael, Foscolo, and Scott. Although Byron's poetry was informed by divergent visions of history, he retained a primary allegiance to geopolitical realities and the facts of observation. The war, the rise and fall of Napoleon, the return of legitimacy after Waterloo, and the continuing threat of revolution shaped Byron's sensibilities and his works
