Of course one is aware of the more silly stanzas that appear throughout some of the poems (they are of their time), but taking Shelley's work as a whole, as the volume under review enables the reader to do, there can be no doubt about the sheer force of this lyrical and powerful master.
The Wordsworth Poetry Library is copious, supplying much of the important prose in addition to the poetry. It is superbly edited with an informative introduction and notes by Bruce Woodcock. This is informal education and reading pleasure combined, and for the ridiculously low sum one has to pay through Amazon, it deserves a place on everyone's bookshelves.
Shelley is one of the great English Romantic poets and his major works include the visionary poem `Queen Mab' (1813), `Alastor, or the Spirit of Solitude' (1816), the epic political poem `The Revolt of Islam'; the four act lyrical drama `Promethius Unbound' (1819), `The Mask of Anarchy' written in response to the Peterloo Massacre; `The Ode to the West Wind', the satirical `Peter Bell the third', `The Witch of Atlas', `The Cenci', `Adonais' (1821) written on hearing of the death of Keats; the autobiographical `Epipsychidia' (1821), `Hellas' (1822) and `The Triumph of Life' (1822).Read more ›
