Summary

Summary

Idealist, atheist, outcast, political radical, and poet—Percy Bysshe Shelley was, in many ways, the epitome of the Romantic artist. His poetry was an outlet for his passionately held and highly unpopular beliefs; beliefs which resulted in social exclusion, exile, and possibly even his premature death at the age of twenty-nine. His work is a monument to his convictions and to the power of the human spirit, and today it is recognized as a key contribution to Romantic literature. This anthology contains many of his best-known poems, including “Ozymandias,” “The Mask of Anarchy,” and “To a Skylark,” as well as excerpts from “Prometheus Unbound” and “Adonaïs.”

Author Bio: Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is regarded by critics as amongst the finest lyric poets in the English language. A radical in his poetry as well as his political and social views, Shelley did not achieve fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley is perhaps best known for such classic poems as “Ozymandias,” “Ode to the West Wind,” “The Masque of Anarchy,” and others.
