Literary treasures from Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries

“Where can you find locks of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s and Mary Shelley’s hair alongside the fragments of Sappho’s poetry? At the Bodleain Libraries in Oxford, England. And also in the book “Marks of Genius: Masterpieces from the Collection of the Bodleian Libraries.” The book includes writings and drawings and ephemera dating from ancient times — Sappho’s fragments are from the 2nd century AD — to the 20th century. Over all that time what constitutes genius has changed.” (via LA Times)
