Rossetti answers Symon's query.
Rossetti, William M. "Shelley's 'Tower of Famine.'" Athenaeum (1904): 626. Web. 21 September 2011.
Rossetti states that he has already addressed the question Symons raised in The Athenaeum in his editions of "Shelley's Poems" in 1870 and 1878. He states that Browning pointed out to him Shelley's mistake in reference to the origin of "The Tower of Famine." He cites his own writing in the above-mentioned volume, and also pinpoints the reference in a Browning letter to Rossetti around that time.
