Om Poems of Shelley: Volume Four
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was one of the major Romantic poets, and wrote what is critically recognised as some of the finest lyric poetry in the English language. This is the fourth volume of the five-volumea The Poems of Shelley, which presents all of Shelley's poems in chronological order and with full annotation. Amongst the poems included in this volume are Epipsychidion and Adonais. Date and circumstances of composition are provided for each poem and all manuscript and printed sources relevant to establishing an authentic and accurate text are freshly examined and assessed. Headnotes and footnotes furnish the personal, literary, historical and scientific information necessary to an informed reading of Shelley's varied and allusive verse.
