NOTES

the third canto of Childe Harold

This was the work on which Byron was working during the summer of 1816. It was carried to his publisher John Murray by Percy Bysshe Shelley when the group returned to England in the late summer. Mary Shelley directly quotes from this canto early in the novel (see I:6:16 and note), and its landscapes frequently color her own natural descriptions.
