Mary Shelley’s favorite keepsake was her dead husband’s heart....



Mary Shelley’s favorite keepsake was her dead husband’s heart. After Percy Shelley’s death, the Frankenstein author kept his heart - carrying it with her for almost 30 years until she died in 1851. A year later, it was then found in a desk drawer, wrapped in a copy of one of his final poems.
