Being Shelley by Ann Wroe

Book Description

Four questions consumed Shelley and coloured everything he wrote. Who, or what, was he? What was his purpose? Where had he come from? And where was he going? He sought the answers in order to free and empower not only himself, but the whole human race. His revolution would shatter the earth's illusions, shock men and women with new visions, find true Love and Liberty - and take everyone with him. Ann Wroe's book takes the life of one of England's greatest poets and turns it inside out, bringing us the life of the poet rather than the man. The result is a journey that is as passionate and exhilarating as it is astonishing. This is Shelley as he has never been seen before.

Six Facets of Light by Ann Wroe Six Facets of Light, Hardback (April 2016)

Goethe claimed to know what light was. Galileo and Einstein both confessed they didn't. On the essential nature of light, and how it operates, the scientific jury is still out. This is a portrait of the transitoriness, randomness, swiftness, frustrations and quicksilver beauty that are the essence of light.

Orpheus by Ann Wroe Orpheus, Paperback (July 2012)

For at least two and a half millennia, the figure of Orpheus has haunted humanity. Half-man, half-god, musician, magician, theologian, poet and lover, his story never leaves us. The author goes in search of Orpheus, from the forests where he walked and the mountains where he worshipped to the artefacts, texts and philosophies built up round him.

Perkin by Ann Wroe Perkin, Paperback (May 2004)

A young man suddenly emerged claiming to be Richard of York, the younger of the Princes in the Tower. As such, he tormented Henry vii for eight years. He tried three times to invade England and behaved like a prince. Officially, however, he was proclaimed to be Perkin Warbeck, the son of a Flemish boatman.

Pontius Pilate by Ann Wroe Pontius Pilate, Paperback (March 2001)

A finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize and the W.H. Smith Award brings Pontius Pilate, the man and myth, to life. Working from classical sources, Wroe takes readers to biblical Judea under the reign of the erratic and licentious emperor Tiberius to witness the trial of Jesus, in all its confusion, from the point of view of his executioner.
