Sample text

He snorted when I crossed myself and fingered my rosary and crucifix. To ease my mind, he said, he drew out his pistols, useless even for dueling, with his white hands. " May the hooks of Hell drag him down to the Lake of Pitch by his ankles. Meanwhile, Señor Shelley sat with the face of a would-be assassin and his pistol pop-guns should highwaymen erupt like Vesuvius from the Pontine Marshes' gloom. We arrived in Naples in time to witness a killing a ragged boy trying to rob a jeweler was stabbed in the neck as he ran.

At least we had the prospect of ruined castles along the Rhine, mermaids in our minds singing down from pinnacled shores, Mary joking that Jane was Lorelei enough for a fleet. Page 28 At Rotterdam I coerced a captain to ferry us to Gravesend on trust; an east wind all but blew us overboard and into my wife's drawing room. After five hours of lies and pleading, I persuaded her to pay that Channel pirate. Before I return to her small-souled whining, I'll walk barefoot the length of the Alps, warmed by the cameo of Mary I carry in my heart.

Page 32 My wife hisses that my Mary has dragged her silly kitten Jane-Claire into the gutter and the least this Shelley can do is pay for her trampled reputation. Page 33 Mary Godwin is Confined to Bed during Her First Pregnancy ''Best Mary,'' Percy calls me, yet he tramps through London with Jane, who now goes by Claire, mistress of romance. Percy tells horrour stories by the evening fire until she will sleep only in our bed, nestled next to Percy like a kitten, paws working for being weaned too early.
