Second Story Books
Rockville, MD, USA
This volume contains a complete collection of poetry written by the seminal Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelly. Shelley s poetry is infused with his belief in the power of human love and his faith in the perpetual improvement and ultimate progress of human kind. His lyric poems, for which he is famous, are exquisite in their beauty, profundity, and masterful composure. This collection would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf, and is highly recommended for all poetry lovers. The poems contained herein include: "Queen Mab: A Philosophical Poem," "To Harriet," "Alastor: Or, the Spirit of Solitude," "Alastor, The Revolt of Islam," "Canto First," "Canto Second," etcetera - as well as substantial introductory notes. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author."
