A fascinating exhibition of Percy Bysshe Shelley's major manuscripts from the Bodleian Shelley Collection at Oxford, also including notebooks and drafts by William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley. As well as Shelley's poems, such as 'Ozymandias' (1818) and the 'Ode to the West Wind' (1819), and prose, including 'A Philosophical View of Reform' (1819-20), the archive display also includes Mary Shelley's draft of 'Frankenstein' (1818), Mary Wollstonecraft's 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman' (1792) and William Godwin's diaries. The exhibition is orientated as an introduction to their literary dynasty, as well as their works. Well worth visiting!
