Summary

The book is an authoritative and up-to-date collection of original essays on one of the greatest of all English poets, Percy Bysshe Shelley. It covers a wide range of topics, exploring Shelley's life and work from many angles. It looks at his emotional relationships and his dealings with publishers; at his prose writing (often overlooked); at the whole range of his prolific and dazzling poetic career; at his response to major figures in European culture such asclassical Greek writing and work by Rousseau and Goethe, and to previous English poets such as Spenser, Milton, and Pope, as well as to his Romantic contemporaries; it also brings out the exciting range of his interests, providing chapters on topics such as science and music, and it investigates Shelley's meaning for subsequent writers and cultures.
