There s no Romantic I adore as much as Shelley I can t wait to read Richard Holmes Shelley The Pursuit and get a little acquainted with the Shelley mythology This Norton edition of his writings has a good deal of introductory material before each piece, and is a worthy biographical study in its own right I can t imagine a complete edition of his works Essential.

Shelley s philosophy is debatable, but his genius is undeniable This volume sheds light on his poetry, and thereby adds to the reader s enjoyment Top picks include Mont Blanc, Hymn to Intellectual Beauty, Ozymandias, Adonais, The Cloud, and Ode to the West Wind.Mont Blanc The everlasting universe of things Flows through the mind, and rolls its rapid waves, Now dark now glittering now reflecting gloom Now lending splendour, where from secret springs The source of human thought its tribute brings [...]

Shelley s influence as a Romantic poet on subsequent generations is evident in the many phrases and images that survive in our collective consciousness even today His Sky Lark with its rain of melody, His West Wind sweeping away the Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red leaves, Ozymandias s sneer of cold command and his echoing statement Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair His style is exuberant and at times bombastic, and he seems to impose on his readers his boundless and insatiable [...]

Prometheus Unbound What is this work It lacks plot, suspense or development, characterization is flat and the poesy is dense and benumbing Is it a play A poem An epic A philosophical dialogue The last act was tacked on after its original publication Need I say Prometheus Unbound is written in a highly complex style dense, convoluted, expansive and ornate Sentences go on for 20 or lines and contain innumerable clauses that dart this direction and that Some sentences aren t even sentences The po [...]

The book that began science fiction, it reeks of a tragedy too perfectly concocted to fully capture in a quarter page book journal entry I love every character in this book for what they bring to it, and it is one of the few books I can read effortlessly, even though it contains almost no dialogue It is a joy to teach, because every year I learn something new about it, and not many books present that kind of replay value I m actually pretty glad that I didn t have to study this one in college, b [...]

I have to say that Shelley does have some of the best imagery, and that alone makes reading most of his poetry worth while for me However, I was disappointed with all other aspacts of his work.First of all, his longer poems seem to either go in circles or have a rather chaotic line of thought.Secondly, whenever he puts in a theme, message, etc they will often contradict one another.Lastly, at times one has to put a lot into understanding the simplest words because of how many different ways Shel [...]

Shelley always brings me back to the truth about myself I am glad to have re read his work I want to write a book about him one day, but it s not now His poems have reminded me of what I need to do Shelley was a true visionary, like Rimbaud, like Goethe, like Milton He lived his work I want to do that.

Reading Queen Mab at the moment Had to do some background research into Edmund Spencer s Faery Queen I m finding significant parallels with Shakespeare s A Midsummer Night s Dream in both works This is my intial impression.

I am okay with Shelley I understand for the most part what he s trying to do and his insolence is kind of charming But, his poetry style is far too dramatic to be enjoyable and it s difficult to break down the meaning between his lines, which is what I m used to doing in poetry.

Hands down, the best edition of his selected works one can own He was a writer not much appreciated in his time but the years have been kinder to him I am truly enamoured of his writings, esp Mont Blanc You cannot go wrong with much contained here.

Shelley is the quintessential Romantic I first became interested in his poetry as a high school senior, and he has remained one of my favorite poets This is an excellent collection, including Shelley s famous Defense of Poetry.

The place to start for romance poetry, pity Shelly died so young, he may have extended the movement and taken the march away from the Victorians.

Shelley is certainly a very interesting character, and this is evident in his writings Although some of his poems can be a bit strange and overwrought, he was a very talented poet.
