I could people the hours with creations

If Mary Shelley's account of her childhood writing suggests affinities with her characterization of Clerval, the depiction of the Scottish idyll of her adolescence similarly encompasses her portrait of the young Elizabeth Lavenza, particularly her fondness for the "aërial creations of the poets" (see both 1818 (I:1:10) and 1831 (I:2:1) texts, and note).
