Clarification re relationship of William Godwin to Fanny Imlay[edit]

The second paragraph of the intro refers to Mary and her half-sister, Fanny, being raised by "their" father. Fanny's father was Gilbert Imlay, not William Godwin. Perhaps this sentence needs to be reworded as "raised by Mary's father"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Niobecat (talkcontribs) 23:21, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Have fixed. Thanks for pointing out the problem. --- Professor JR (talk) 07:24, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request[edit]

In the third paragraph, the first sentence reads as follows:

In 1814, Mary began a romance with one of her father's political followers, the then married Percy Bysshe Shelley.

The bolded word "the" should be "she", so the sentence would read:

In 1814, Mary began a romance with one of her father's political followers, she then married Percy Bysshe Shelley.

I hope that I have followed the rules and that this request is clear enough.

Semi-protected edit request on 30 September 2017[edit]

Please change (I will put the words that need to be changed in BRACKETS) the following: To deal with her grief, Shelley wrote the novella The Fields of Fancy, which become [BECAME] Matilda [,] dealing with a young woman whose beauty inspired incestuous love in her father, who ultimately commits suicide to stop himself from acting on his passion for his daughter [,] while she spends the rest of her life full of [IN DESPAIR, NOT FULL OF] despair about "the unnatural love I had inspired".[101] The novella offered a feminist critique of a patriarchal society as Matilda is punished in the afterlife through [THOUGH] she did nothing to encourage her father's feelings AMGunn (talk) 06:34, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

Partly done: Except for the "full of despair" part, are you sure? it seems grammatically correct to me. regards, DRAGON BOOSTER 07:20, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
