Percy Shelley

by Prof. Harold Bloom

Percy Shelley Synopsis

Percy Shelley left an indelible mark on English romantic poetry with his enduring works, including Ozymandias, To a Skylark, and Ode to the West Wind. Esteemed scholar Harold Bloom states that Shelley, though at heart a skeptic and not a Platonic visionary, nevertheless broke through to a Gnostic vision of his own. His evolving critical reputation is presented here from the commentary of those who knew him to the assessments of succeeding generations of critics and readers. These critical essays are enhanced by a chronology of Shelley's life, an index of the volume, and an introductory essay penned by Bloom.
