Note: jail

Mary Shelley's father, William Godwin, was the author of a famous Jacobin novel, Caleb Williams; Or, Things as They Are (1794). In it the hero is wrongly pursued (out of revenge) by unjust law based in class inequality; at one point he falls in among rural thieves and then spends some time in jail.
