Description

Idealist, atheist, outcast, political radical and, of course, poet - Percy Bysshe Shelley was, in many ways, the epitome of the Romantic artist. His poetry was an outlet for his passionately held and highly unpopular beliefs, beliefs which resulted in social exclusion, exile, and possibly even his premature death at the age of 29. His work is a monument to his convictions and to the power of the human spirit, and today it is recognized as a key contribution to Romantic literature.

This anthology contains many of Shelley's best-known poems, including "Ozymandias", "The Mask of Anarchy", and "To a Skylark", as well as excerpts from (among others) "Prometheus Unbound" and "AdonaĆÆs", all read by Bertie Carvel, one of the most talented English actors of his generation.
