Percy Bysshe Shelley - Epipsychidion
Epipsychidion ​is a major poetical work published in 1821 by Percy Bysshe Shelley. The work was subtitled: "Verses addressed to the noble and unfortunate Lady, Emilia V--, now imprisoned in the convent of --." The title is Greek for “concerning or about a little soul" from epi, "around", and psychidion, "little soul".

Percy Bysshe Shelley - Prometheus ​Unbound
Prometheus ​Unbound is a four-act lyrical drama by Percy Bysshe Shelley, first published in 1820. It is concerned with the torments of the Greek mythological figure Prometheus, who defies the gods and gives fire to humanity, for which he is subjected to eternal punishment and suffering at the hands of Zeus. It is inspired by the classical Prometheia, a trilogy of plays attributed to Aeschylus. Shelley’s play concerns Prometheus’ release from captivity, but unlike Aeschylus’ version, there is no reconciliation between Prometheus and Jupiter (Zeus). Instead, Jupiter is abandoned by his supportive elements and falls from power, which allows Prometheus to be released. Shelley’s play is closet drama, meaning it was not intended to be produced on the stage. In the tradition of Romantic poetry, Shelley wrote for the imagination, intending his play’s stage to reside in the imaginations of his readers. However, the play is filled with suspense, mystery and other dramatic effects that make it, in theory, performable.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - The ​Cenci
The ​Cenci, A Tragedy, in Five Acts (1819) is a verse drama in five acts by Percy Bysshe Shelley written in the summer of 1819, and inspired by a real Italian family, the Cenci (in particular, Beatrice Cenci, pronounced CHEN-chee). Shelley composed the play at Rome and at Villa Valsovano near Livorno, from May to 5 August 1819. The horrific tragedy, set in 1599 in Rome, of a young woman executed for pre-meditated murder of her tyrannical father, was a well-known true story handed down orally and documented in the Annali d’Italia, a twelve-volume chronicle of Italian history written by Ludovico Antonio Muratori in 1749. The events occurred during the Pontificate of Pope Clement VIII. Shelley was first drawn to dramatise the tale after viewing Guido Reni’s portrait of Beatrice Cenci, a painting that intrigued Shelley’s poetic imagination.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - St. ​Irvyne; Or, the Rosicrucian
St. ​Irvyne; or, The Rosicrucian, A Romance is a Gothic horror novella written by Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1810 and published by John Joseph Stockdale in 1811 in London anonymously as ”by a Gentleman of the University of Oxford”. The main character is Wolfstein, a solitary wanderer, who encounters Ginotti, an alchemist of the Rosicrucian or Rose Cross Order who seeks to impart the secret of immortality.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - Zastrozzi
Zastrozzi: ​A Romance is a Gothic novella by Percy Bysshe Shelley first published in 1810 in London by George Wilkie and John Robinson anonymously, with only the initials of the author’s name, as ”by P.B.S.”. The first of Shelley’s two early, Gothic novellas, it outlines his atheistic worldview through the villain Zastrozzi and touches upon his earliest thoughts on irresponsible self-indulgence and violent revenge. An 1810 reviewer wrote that the main character ”Zastrozzi is one of the most savage and improbable demons that ever issued from a diseased brain.” Shelley wrote Zastrozzi at the age of seventeen while attending his last year at Eton College, though it was not published until later in 1810 while he was attending University College, Oxford. The novella was Shelley’s first published prose work.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - The ​Selected Poetry and Prose of Shelley
Shelley's ​short, prolific life produced some of the most memorable and well-known lyrics of the Romantic period. But he was the most radical writer in the English literary tradition of his day, a fiery political visionary committed to social change and progress. The generous selection in this volume represents the wide range of his writing, both poetry and prose. Arranged chronologically, the accompanying introductory essays set Shelley's works in their historical, social and political context. They provide a vivid insight into the life and times of this volcanic spirit whose inspiring voice called on the people of England to: 'Rise like lions after slumber In unvanquishable number; Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you. Ye are many, they are few.' (The Mask of Anarchy)

Percy Bysshe Shelley - John Keats - Shelley ​és Keats versei
A ​két költő az angol romantikusok második nagy nemzedékéhez tartozik. "Shelley a vers zeneiségében éri el a legmagasabb határt, Keats pedig festőiségben" - írja róluk Szerb Antal. Válogatásunk ezt próbálja ábrázolni neves műfordítók segítségével és azzal, hogy egy-egy vers több költő tolmácsolásában is megszólal.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - Shelley ​versei
Percy ​Bysshe Shelleynek (1792-1822), a nagy angol romantikus költőnek rövid élete a lázadás lobogásában égett el, botrányok sorozata volt. Az ateizmus szükségszerűségéről irt pamfletje miatt kizárták az oxfordi egyetemről, apjával összeveszve egy tizenhat éves lánnyal Skóciába szökött, ahol összeházasodtak. De házassága csődbe jutott, különváltak. Felesége öngyilkossága után egy korában hires anarchista filozófus lányát vette el. Bár addig is sokat utazott külföldön, az anyagi gondok, a társadalmi rossz hire és megromlott egészsége miatt 1818-ban végérvényesen Itáliába költözött. Költőileg hallatlanul termékeny évek következtek, olyan érett költemények születtek ekkor, mint az Óda a nyugati szélhez, az Egy mezei pacsirtához, A felhő vagy a Keats halálát sirató Adonais. Ám ahogy a világirodalom más nagy alkotóinál is bekövetkezik: e felfokozott alkotói láz a baljósan közeli véget jelentette: 1822 augusztusában Shelley "Ariel" nevű vitorlásával a Földközi-tengerbe fulladt. A költő, aki szenvedélyesen szeretett hajózni, nem tudott úszni. Mikor holttestét megtalálták, kabátja zsebében Keats egyik kötete volt. Shelley földi maradványait Byron máglyán égette el a tengerparton. S bár a valóságban korántsem volt a három költő kapcsolata olyan szoros, Shelley halála eképp mindörökre egybekapcsolta nevüket. Az irodalmi divatok változása persze megtépázta az ő dicsőségét is, ha nem is annyira, mint Byronét. Századunk gyanakodva szemléli a romantikus életműveket. De Shelley verseinek éteri lebegése, tiszta zeneisége, kompozicióinak rejtett filozófikuma, lázadásának kamaszos heve a világlira egyik örök, és örökké újraolvasandó értéke.

Percy Bysshe Shelley - The ​Revolt of Islam
The ​Revolt of Islam (1818) is a poem in twelve cantos composed by Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1817. The poem was originally published under the title Laon and Cythna; or, The Revolution of the Golden City: A Vision of the Nineteenth Century by Charles and James Ollier in December 1817. Shelley composed the work in the vicinity of Bisham Wood, near Great Marlow in Buckinghamshire, northwest of London, from April to September. The plot centres on two characters named Laon and Cythna who initiate a revolution against the despotic ruler of the fictional state of Argolis, modelled on the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Despite its title, the poem has nothing to do with Islam in particular, though the general subject of religion is addressed. The work is a symbolic parable on liberation and revolutionary idealism following the disillusionment of the French

Percy Bysshe Shelley - The ​Major Works
This ​major new edition, originally commissioned for the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode, brings together a unique combination of Shelley's poetry and prose - the lyric poems, plays, longer poems, criticism, and essays - to give the essence of his work and thinking. Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was a Romantic poet of radical imaginings, living in an age of change. His tempestuous life and friendship with Byron, and his tragically early death, at times threatened to overwhelm his legacy as a poet, but today his standing as one of the foremost English authors is assured. This freshly edited anthology - the fullest one-volume selection in English - includes all but one of the longer poems, from Queen Mab onwards, in their entirety. Only Laon and Cythna is excerpted, in a generous selection. As well as works such asPrometheus Unbound, The Mask of Anarchy, and Adonais, the volume includes a wide range of Shelley's shorter poems and much of his major prose, including A Defence of Poetry and almost all of A Philosophical View of Reform. Shelley emerges from these pages as a passionate and eloquent opponent of tyranny and a champion of human possibility.
