According to legend, which author wrapped up her dead husband’s heart and kept it for nearly 30 years?
- Mary Shelley:Percy Shelley was just 29 when he drowned after his boat was caught in a storm in 1822. His body and those of his two sailing companions were found 10 days later. Percy was cremated, but for some reason, his heart refused to burn. Modern-day physicians believe it may have calcified due to an earlier bout with tuberculosis. Instead of burying it with the rest of his remains, his wife, Mary, kept the heart in a silken shroud and is said to have carried it with her for nearly 30 years. In 1852, a year after Mary died, Percy’s heart was found in her desk, wrapped in the pages of one of his last poems, Adonais.
