Claire Clairmont, the step-sister of Mary Shelley, has until now generally been treated as a secondary character in the great dramas of Shelley and Byron. This is the first full account of a long and adventurous life, correcting many misconceptions about her role in the Shelley circle.

The late Robert Gittings won prizes for John Keats: The Living Year (W.H. Smith Literary Award 1969); Young Thomas Hardy (Christian Gauss Award 1975); The Older Hardy (RSL Heinemann Award, 1979, James Tait Black Memorial Prize 1979); and with Jo Manton for Dorothy Wordsworth (Southern Arts Literature Prize, 1987). Jo Manton is author of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, and with Robert Gittings The Second Mrs. Hardy (1981) and Dorothy Wordsworth (O.U.P., 1987; P.B. Oxford Lives, 1988).Review:
"Destined to become a reference point by which to compass the lives of the Shelley Circle. Best of all, Gittings and Manton render an invaluable service to the literary history of nineteenth-century England: They rescue Claire Clairmont from the margins of history and bring her center-page."--The Hudson Review
