I think this is the best edition if you want a well-annotated text of Shelley's major works. The notes provided in this edition are excellent - I find that because Shelley was writing in a time of political and personal turmoil, I would not have understood much of his poetry without the annotations accompanying the text. A lot of his works are very personal comments on politics, religion, love, and require the background reading provided if you want to fully understand his writing. This edition certainly helps you with the various contexts, providing clearly explained commentary.

This is the best one-volume collection of Shelley's magical poems available. The only down side for me is that only a selection of Laon and Cythna is included. They should have left out the prose and the notes to Queen Mab and included all of Laon and Cythna.

Shelley's poems are startling for their metric perfection, for their strength, and for the subversive charge they have still got to the present day.
