This Romantic Writer Was Truly A Romantic


Mary Shelley – writer of Frankenstein, wife of poet Percy Shelley, and daughter of women’s rights advocate Mary Wollstonecraft – was also an lgbtqia+ supporter. Though she would never have used that term. In 1827, Shelley helped obtain false documents for her friends Isabel Robinson and Mary Diana Dods; the two were in love, and wanted to move to France as husband and wife. With Shelley’s help they were successful, and Mary eventually visited them, at their new home in France.
