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.
