La famille d'Harriet contrecarre les efforts de Percy, pleinement soutenu par Mary Godwin, en vue d'obtenir la garde de ses enfants. [154] Unfortunately, all of Mary's juvenilia were lost when she ran off with Percy in 1814, and none of her surviving manuscripts can be definitively dated before that year. Durant le XIXe siècle, Mary Shelley est perçue au mieux, comme l’auteure d’un seul roman, plutôt que comme l’écrivain professionnel qu’elle était. Le même mois, les Shelley déménagent, avec Claire et Alba, à Albion House, un grand immeuble humide sur la Tamise, à Marlow, dans le Buckinghamshire.

L’éditeur Frederick Jones écrit même, dans l’introduction du recueil de lettres publié en 1945 : « un recueil de cette taille n’est pas justifié par la qualité des lettres de Mary Shelley ou par son importance en tant qu’écrivain.

", "The qualities that struck any one newly introduced to Shelley, were, first, a gentle and cordial goodness that animated his intercourse with warm affection, and helpful sympathy. [259] According to Wolfson, Donald Reiman, a modern editor of Percy Bysshe Shelley's works, still refers to Mary Shelley's editions, while acknowledging that her editing style belongs "to an age of editing when the aim was not to establish accurate texts and scholarly apparatus but to present a full record of a writer's career for the general reader". [102] Shelley bitterly commented that she had come to Italy to improve her husband's health, and instead the Italian climate had just killed her two children, leading her to write: "May you my dear Marianne never know what it is to lose two only and lovely children in one year—to watch their dying moments—and then at last to be left childless and forever miserable". A masterpiece about death but brimming with, although nefarious as it may be, life! Wolfson, "Mary Shelley, editor" (CC), 194; Fraistat, "Shelley Left and Right".

Inside they found locks of her dead children's hair, a notebook she had shared with Percy Bysshe Shelley, and a copy of his poem Adonaïs with one page folded round a silk parcel containing some of his ashes and the remains of his heart. She wrote to Leigh Hunt, "I write bad articles which help to make me miserable—but I am going to plunge into a novel and hope that its clear water will wash off the mud of the magazines. Mary found a way to tell the story of Percy's life, nonetheless: she included extensive biographical notes about the poems.

Dans son journal intime, entre les années 1830 et 1840, des allusions détournées suggèrent que Mary Shelley a eu des sentiments pour le politicien radical Aubrey Beauclerk, mais celui-ci l’a probablement déçue à deux reprises, en en épousant une autre[114],[N 16].

[135] For instance, Shelley extended financial aid to Mary Diana Dods, a single mother and illegitimate herself who appears to have been a lesbian and gave her the new identity of Walter Sholto Douglas, husband of her lover Isabel Robinson. Ideas of non-violent resistance, vegetarianism and free love are all concepts still unacceptable to many even today: Shelley was far more shocking, challenging God and State, the very foundations of society. The coroner ruled it death by natural causes but there is strong evidence that he committed suicide by poisoning himself with cyanide, to escape his depression and gambling debts. Victor Frankenstein's "thoughtless rejection of family", for example, is seen as evidence of Shelley's constant concern for the domestic.
