Percy Bysshe Shelley by John Addington Symonds

Shelley did not publish "Epipsychidion" with his own name. He gave it to the world as a composition of a man who had "died at Florence, as he was preparing for a voyage to one of the Sporades," and he requested Ollier not to circulate it, except among a few intelligent readers. It may almost be said to have been never published, in such profound silence did it issue from the press

PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY By John Addington Symonds. Version 1. Percy bysshe shelley. By Delphi Classics, 2012. Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822) was born at Field Place, Warnham, near Horsham, being the eldest son of Sir Timothy Shelley and Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Pilfold. Shelley grew up to be a remarkably gentle and generous young man, who devoutly believed in non-violence and practised vegetarianism. However, he was often criticised for his lack of adherence to duty and responsibility, often seen as revolting against authority. While at Oxford University, Shelley was accused of Atheism following the publication of Queen Mab, which he had printed for private circulation.

His major works include the long visionary poems 'Prometheus Unbound' and 'Adonais', an elegy on the death of John Keats. His shorter, classic verses include 'To a Skylark', 'Mont Blanc' and 'Ode to the West Wind'.

Byron died when he was thirtysix, Keats when he was twentyfive, and Shelley when he was on the point of completing his thirtieth year. Of the three, Keats enjoyed the briefest space for the development of his extraordinary powers. His achievement, perfect as it is in some poetic qualities, remains so immature and incomplete that no conjecture can be hazarded about his future.

The object of these sentiments was a boy about my own age, of a character eminently generous, brave, and gentle; and the elements of human feeling seemed to have been, from his birth, genially compounded within him.

The work delves into the life and works of Shelley. Symonds has provided a rich biography of the man and he dispels a lot of misconceptions about the great poet. Glimpses of other great men related to Shelley are also provided here. An amazing and deeply researched work.

Reading this, I emphasized completely with Mary Shelley. It's very hard not to fall in love with her husband, when reading his poetry! ;) I think he challenged Christina Rosetti and Baudelaire, who'd been battling for the position of my favorite poet. His work is beautiful, romantic, and paints a vivid, magical picture of other worlds with his works. If you enjoy Algernon Blackwood,
Anne Rice, and Mary Shelley herself, I think you'll love Shelley's work.
First, William Meredith writes a brief but useful essay to put Shelley's works into a context. He neither overpraises the poet nor dismisses him as overrated.

Second, it's the poetry itself that is crucial for any such volume. On page 28, we come across a poem that I think is wonderful, "Mutability." This indicates that there are few constants, and closes with a couple wonderful lines:

"Man's yesterday may ne'er be like his morrow;
Naught may endure but mutability."

Brief, but telling. One of my favorite of Shelley's poems.

Then, perhaps, my favorite poem of all: "Ozymandias." What a wonderful warning against the Greeks' tragic flaw of hubris. The final five lines say it all:

"'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Powerful stuff, speaking to the futility of those who are arrogant.

And so many more poems. . . . The anti-war poem, "Similes for Two Political Characters in 1819," which closes with the line:

"Two vipers tangled into one."

I once used one of his poems, "To Sophia [Miss Stacey]," in a letter to a special person in my life at that time.

And, at this point in my life, his lament about aging, "A Lament," takes on some poignancy.

And so on. . . .

This is a special slim little volume that I bought decades ago, but it still resonates.
Why publish a book about Shelley with a picture of a much older man on the cover. Or is that a picture of the author? Shelley died young and there are a number of beautiful and realistic portraits of him available to use, so why be so careless with this cover?
Wasn't what I had expected.
