Eleanor Flexner, MARY WOLLSTONECRAFT: A BIOGRAPHY (New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegen, 1972)
|IMLAY posed in Europe as an American frontiersman, to lend cache to his books. He fathered Wollstonecraft's first daughter, Fanny, who was raised as the sister of her second daughter in the household with Mary and William Goodwin. Fanny was a troubled child and young woman, and committed suicide in 1816. Her sister Mary married Shelly and wrote FRANKENSTEIN; her step-sister, Clarie Clairmont, the daughter of her father's second wife, was Byron's lover and bore an illigetimate child by him. The four of them, Mary Shelly, Shelly, Claire, and Byron, formed a group in Italy. |
