Unfamiliar Shelley by Timothy Webb

Book Description

Stimulated by new editions of Shelley's writings and the evidence of notebooks, the editors have assembled an outstanding group of international Shelley scholars to work through the implications of recent advances in scholarship. With particular attention to texts that have been neglected or underestimated, the contributors consider many important aspects of Shelley's prolific and remarkably diverse output, including the verse letter, plays, prose essays, satire, pamphlets, political verse, romance, prefaces, translations from the Greek, prose style, artistic representations, fragments and early writings. Revaluations of Shelley's youthful works, often criticized for their over-exuberance, pay dividends as they reveal Shelley's early maturation as a writer and also shed light on his later achievement. Taken as a whole, the collection makes evident that Shelley's reputation has been based largely on surprisingly imperfect and incomplete edited publications, driven by Victorian taste and culture. A writer very different from the one we thought we knew emerges from these essays, which are sure to inspire more reappraisals of Shelley's work.

Books By Author Timothy Webb

Neglected Shelley by Timothy Webb Neglected Shelley, Hardback (November 2015)

Shows that even the poet's apparently slighter works are important in their own right and are instructive as expressions of Shelley's developing art of composition and the diverse interests he pursued throughout his career.

Selected Poems by Timothy Webb Selected Poems, Paperback (May 2000)

Features a selection of the works of W B Yeats, which includes the narrative poem "The Wanderings of Oisin". This title also includes poems in alternative versions; and in many other cases it provides significant variants, so that Yeats' struggle to revise his poetry can be experienced with unusual immediacy.
