Prometheus unbound, a variorum edition by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

180 editions published between 1819 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prometheus Unbound is a four act lyric play it was not written to be performed as a play but staged within the imagination of the reader. It is a reply to Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound which has the hero stealing fire from the gods to give to mortals. Many think this work is Shelley's masterpiece as it represents a culmination of the poet's political thought and displays his considerable gift of lyrical expression. The play was written over 4 years as its progress was severely impeded by the tragic death of first his daughter Clara Everina in 1818 and then his son William in 1819. The fourth act, a warning that evil must be checked lest tyranny reign, was added many months after the first three had been completed and revised. Shelley compares his Prometheus to Milton's Satan in Paradise Lost: But Prometheus is, as it were, the type of the highest perfection of moral and intellectual nature, impelled by the purest and the truest motives to the best and noblest ends
Shelley's Adonais : a critical edition by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

171 editions published between 1821 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron are generally considered the second generation of the great English Romantic poets. Shelley was an admirer of Keats's work, and though a few of the letters they exchanged reveal the somewhat rocky nature of their friendship, Shelley graciously invited Keats to join him at his residence at Pisa as his health declined. Keats, instead, removed himself to Rome, where he succumbed to tuberculosis in a villa on the Spanish Steps. Immediately after hearing of his death, Shelley began to compose Adonaïs, an elegy to Keats that is now considered among Shelley's best and most renowned works. Along with Shelley's achingly beautiful tribute, this 1891 volume features brief memoirs of both Shelley and Keats, cancelled passages of the poem, and extensive analysis by English writer and critic William Michael Rossetti

Shelley and the Revolution in taste : the body and the natural world by Timothy Morton( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together the themes of diet, consumption, the body, and human relationships with the natural world, in a highly original study of Shelley. A campaigning vegetarian and proto-ecological thinker, Shelley may seem to us curiously modern, but Morton offers an illuminatingly broad context for Shelley's views in eighteenth-century social and political thought concerning the relationships between humanity and nature. The book is at once grounded in the revolutionary history of the period 1790-1820, and informed by current theoretical issues and anthropological and sociological approaches to literature. Morton provides challenging new readings of much-debated poems, plays, and novels by both Percy and Mary Shelley, as well as the first sustained interpretation of Shelley's prose on diet. With its stimulating literary-historical reassessment of questions about nature and culture, this study will provoke fresh discussion about Shelley, Romanticism, and modernity."--Pub. desc
