Notes

 

Elizabeth Hitchener was a schoolmistress from Hurstpierpoint who enjoyed a close romantic and intellectual relationship with Shelley. She assisted him in disposing of copies of a ballad sheet, The Devil's Walk, by entrusting it in fire balloons, green bottles, and ingeniously constructed boat-boxes to the mercy of the wind and waves. After repeated invitations she gave up her school and went to live with the Shelleys at Lyndmouth, a step which proved disastrous for her relationship with the poet. Her letters to Shelley were first published in a private edition in 1890 and reissued in 1908.
