The Last Man, Edited by Steven E. Jones


During the early nineteenth century, Rome, the Eternal City, became an especially significant site for English authors. Mary Shelley and P. B. Shelley lived there; Shelley and Keats are buried there; the former wrote much of his best-known work, Prometheus Unbound, amidst the monuments and ruins of the city.

See Donald H. Reiman's "Roman Scenes in Prometheus Unbound III.iv,275".
