Shelley's Poetry and Prose (Norton Critical Editions)
by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Neil Fraistat, Donald H Reiman

Overview -
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) quickly rose to the high ranks of the Romantic Movement with his pure and moving lyric verse. Born in Sussex, England, he became a visionary and highly influential Romantic in search of truth and beauty. Shelley maintained a close circle of literary friends, including Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, and Leigh Hunt. A master of versification, imagery, tone, and symbolism, Shelley's poems propelled an entire era of English literature into the next century. This volume collects a diverse range of his work, representative of his great range and depth as a poet. Here we encounter "Ozymandias," "Prometheus Unbound," "Adonais," "To a Skylark," "Helas," "Ode to the West Wind," and many more. Along with Lord Byron, Keats, Wordsworth, and Coleridge, Shelley would help propel Romanticism to its peak, paving the way for Victorian poetry and eventually 20th century modernism. Shelley's influence is undeniable and far-reaching. His lines, subtle and complex, fleeting and permanent, name and grasp beauty in an attempt at transcendence through the sublimeness of the natural world.
