"Hapless woman! What a fate is thine!"
What woman? What fate? The suspense is killing me!
Her own daughter! Mary was lamenting the state of the modern woman as represented in her own offspring
I think I have to go over my history, because I thought she died before her daughters were grown. It's not the suspense that's killing me now, it's the shame! Off to the bookshelf...slink....
Well I think she had written it when her first daughter was still a child (brain fart on the date) and she died shortly after Mary Shelley was born.
Fabulous late 18th c. portrait! I love the simplicity of this image. Thanks for posting!
