A short life, and a turbulent one-Shelley died at the age of twenty-nine. The work he left behind is among the most lyrically beautiful and politically committed in the language. Inspired by the Age of Revolutions, Shelley proved too provocative for England. Sent down from Oxford and disillusioned with English life, he spent his last years in self imposed exile in Italy. His writings on vegetarianism, the marriage system, love, Christianity, the devil, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and political reform are represented in this selection, together with complete versions of Address...on the 'Death of the Princess Charlotte' and a 'Defence of Poetry'.

"This anthology brings together for the first time Shelley's almost unknown prose writings on the subject of love. Drawn from his notebooks, his essays, his reviews, his fictional fragments, his translations, and his continuous stream of private philosophical speculations, it does not merely give a Romantic poet's view of romantic passion, but treats of love at large, in all its forms and manifestations: childhood and parental; adolescent and idealized; heterosexual and homosexual; domestic and poetic; communal and monogamous; pagan and Christian; earthly and ideal. It selects three extracts from the lesser-read longer poems, which serve to crystallize his attitudes to love at three critical moments in his personal life: from Alastor (1816), from Julian and Maddalo (1818), and from his verse autobiography, Epipsychidion (1821 )"--Preface.

The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley takes stock of current developments in the study of a major Romantic poet and prose-writer, and seeks to advance Shelley studies beyond the current state of scholarship. It consists of forty-two chapters written by a prestigious internationalcast of established and emerging scholar-critics, and offers the most wide-ranging single-volume body of writings on Shelley. The volume builds on the textual revolution in Shelley studies, which has transformed understanding of the poet, as critics are able to focus on what Shelley actually wrote. This Handbook is divided into five thematic sections: Biography and Relationships; Prose; Poetry; Cultures, Traditions, Influences; and Afterlives. The first section reappraises Shelley's life and relationships, including those with his publishers through whom he sought to reach an audience for the'Ashes and sparks' of his thought, and with women, creative collaborators as well as muse-figures; the second section gives his under-investigated prose works detailed attention, bringing multiple perspectives to bear on his shifting and complex conceptual positions, and demonstrating the range ofhis achievement in prose works from novels to political and poetic treatises; the third section explores Shelley's creativity and gift as a poet, emphasizing his capacity to excel in many different poetic genres; the fourth section looks at Shelley's response to past and contemporary literarycultures, both English and international, and at his immersion in science, music, theatre, the visual arts, and tourism and travel; the fifth section concludes the volume by analysing Shelley's literary and cultural afterlife, from his influence on Victorians and Moderns, to his status as theexemplary poet for Deconstruction. The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley brings out the relevance to Shelley's own work of his dictum that 'All high poetry is infinite' and shows how he continues to generate original critical responses.
