      For instance, to recreate the tragic scene when Shelley's drowned body is washed ashore at Viareggio and later cremated on the beach, Lehmann borrows eight pages from the powerful eyewitness account in E. J. Trelawny's Recollections of the Last Days of Shelley and Byron. Percy Bysshe Shelley (August 4, July 8, ; pronounced ['pɜːsi bɪʃ 'ʃɛli]) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is widely considered to be among the finest lyric poets of the English language. He is perhaps most famous for such anthology pieces as Ozymandias, Ode to the West Wind, To a Skylark, and The Masque of r, his major works were Born: August 4, , Horsham, England.

      In Byron's case, however, there was a disposition to be unfavourable. The personality of Shelley, on the other hand, is singularly attractive. Manifestly he took the young stranger's heart by storm. The "last days" are vividly described. We hear much of the fatal boat, "built in the eclipse, and rigged with curses dark.". Interwoven with her futuristic theme, Mary Shelley incorporates idealised portraits of Shelley and Byron, yet rejects Romanticism and its faith in art and nature. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley () was the only daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft, author of Vindication of the Rights of Woman, and the radical philosopher William Godwin.
