Book Description

First published in 1909, with a second edition in 1923, this concise and easily accessible overview of Shelley’s life and work presents the poet not as popular legend would have it, but in a more objective light. A.Clutton-Brock notes his forthright and imperious attitude to life – a life in which Shelley found himself increasingly unhappy – and critically examines many facets of his artistic career which are often overlooked or misrepresented.
