Shelley, M. W. (n.d.). Mary, A Fiction. Retrieved from http://cn.ebooklibrary.org/

Excerpt: generally portrayed. This woman is neither a Clarissa, a Lady G , nor a Sophie. It would be vain to mention the various modifications of these models, as it would to remark, how widely artists wander from nature, when they copy the originals of great masters. They catch the gross parts; but the subtile spirit evaporates; and not having the just ties, affectation disgusts, when grace was expected to charm. Those compositions only have power to delight, and carry us willing captives, where the soul of the author is exhibited, and animates the hidden springs. Lost in a pleasing enthusiasm, they live in the scenes they represent; and do not measure their steps in a beaten track, solicitous to gather expected flowers, and bind them in a wreath, according to the prescribed rules of art. These chosen few, wish to speak for themselves, and not to be an echo even of the sweetest sounds or the reflector of the most sublime beams. The paradise they ramble in, must be of their own creating or the prospect soon grows insipid, and not varied by a vivifying principle, fades and dies.
