Description - Being Shelley by Ann Wroe

This book takes the life of one of England s greatest poets and turns it inside out. Rather than following a daily round in which poetry erupts occasionally, it tracks the inner adventures of a spirit struggling to escape and create. This is the life of the poet, rather than the man. 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. Now, for the first time, this passionate and radical quest is put at the centre of Shelley s life. The result is a spiritual journey that is as dangerous and exhilarating as it is astonishing. This is Shelley as he has never been seen before.
