In Paris during the summer of 1814, two lovers, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, began a chronicle of their life together, starting with an account of the day they eloped to France. These journals--kept during the early years by both of them and then, after their marriage, mostly by Mary alone--are an essential source of information about the lives, both individually and together, of two major British literary figures. This critical edition, the first to be faithful to the manuscript, presents the full text of all surviving journal entries and provides extensive biographical commentary drawn from unpublished as well as published sources.

'This is the first accurate and complete edition of the Journals, with carefully restored passages and corrected misreadings ... the editors have done an admirable job in making the Journal accessible to readers.' Keats-Shelley Journal 'Feldman and Scott-Kilvert have made an invaluable contribution to Romantic studies as a whole in their painstaking annotation of this tricky and often obscure document ... this is a fine edition of a text which has been unavailable for too long ... Its editors must be commended for having produced so rich and meticulous an annotation of it - one which will be welcomed by Shelley scholars and interested readers alike. Angela Leighton, University of Hull. Review of English Studies 'A wealth of biographical information is digested into the footnotes and supports the particularity of the journals. Moreover, the text itself has been elegantly, and in some respects, lavishly produced. It reflects credit on Oxford' Notes and Queries 'immaculate editing' Notes and Queries
