Today in history -- a birthday

Today is Mary Shelley's birthday. She was quite a woman. She is the author of Frankenstein. She was married to the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Percy drowned in July of 1822 and washed up on the beach after ten days, where he was cremated. A friend of Mary's reached into the fire and plucked out Percy's heart and gave it to her. It is said that she carried it in her purse thereafter.
