Adonais, an elegy on the death of John Keats by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

181 editions published between 1821 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 798 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

The Cenci by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

94 editions published between 1819 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a verse drama written in the summer of 1819, and inspired by a real Italian family, the Cencis. Shelley composed the play at Rome and at Villa Valsovano near Livorno, from May to 5 August 1819. The work was published by Charles and James Ollier, in London in 1819. Shelley sought to have the play staged, describing it as totally different from anything you might conjecture that he should write; of a more popular kind written for the multitude. The play was not considered performable in its day due to its themes of incest and parricide, and was not performed in public in England until 1922 when it was staged in London. This is part of the TREDITION CLASSICS series which contains classical literature works from over two thousand years. Most of these titles have been out of print and off the bookstore shelves for decades. The book series is intended to preserve the cultural legacy and to promote the timeless works of classical literature. Readers of a TREDITION CLASSICS book support the mission to save many of the amazing works of world literature from oblivion. With this series, tredition intends to make thousands of international literature classics available in printed format again - worldwide

Shelley's Poetry and prose : authoritative texts, criticism by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

23 editions published between 1977 and 2002 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shelley's poetry has gone in and out of fashion since his death in 1822--first considered immature, excessive, and even incoherent but later judged by critics to be among the great poems of the English language. At its best, his poetry is unparalleled for its range of metrical experimentation, its moral rigor, and its lush, sensual imagery. He has been staunchly championed by poets from Byron to Wordsworth to Yeats

The complete poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A milestone in literary scholarship, the publication of the Johns Hopkins edition of The Complete Poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley makes available for the first time critically edited clear texts of all poems and translations that Shelley published or circulated among friends, as well as diplomatic texts of his significant incomplete poetic drafts and fragments. Edited upon historical principles by Donald H. Reiman and Neil Fraistat, the multi volume edition will offer more poems and fragments than any previous collective edition, arranged in the order of their first circulation. These texts are followed by the most extensive collations hitherto available and detailed commentaries that describe their contextual origins and subsequent reception. Rejected passages of released poems appear as supplements to those poems, while other poetic drafts that Shelley rejected or left incomplete at his death will be grouped according to either their publication histories or the notebooks in which they survive. Volume One includes Shelley's first four works containing poetry (all prepared for publication before his expulsion from Oxford), as well as "The Devil's Walk" (circulated in August 1812), and a series of short poems that he sent to friends between 1809 and 1814, including a bawdy satire on his parents and "Oh wretched mortal," a poem never before published. An appendix discusses poems lost or erroneously attributed to the young Shelley. "These early poems are important not only biographically but also aesthetically, for they provide detailed evidence of how Shelley went about learning his craft as a poet, and the differences between their tone and that of his mature short poetry index a radical change in his self-image... The poems in Volume I, then, demonstrate Shelley's capacity to write verse in a range of stylistic registers. This early verse, even in its most abandoned forays into Sensibility, the Gothic, political satire, and vulgarityperhaps especially in these most apparently idiosyncratic gesturesprovides telling access to its own cultural moment, as well as to Shelley's art and thought in general."from the Editorial Overview
