    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2016; US$ 149.95

  • Shelley's Musicby Paul A. Vatalaro

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 2009. This book argues that the images of and allusions to music in Shelley?s writing demonstrate his attempt to infuse the traditionally masculine word with the traditionally feminine voice and music. This further extends to his even more fundamental desire to integrate the "object voice" with his own subjectivity. For Shelley,... more...

  • Shelley and the Romantic Revolutionby F.A. Lea

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 46.50

    First published in 1945. In this work the author seeks to correct the misinterpretation and incorrect labelling of Shelley?s thought. While not neglecting Shelley as a poet, this book focuses on his contributions made to the general movement of political and philosophical thought of his era and by so doing his relevance to contemporary issues.

  • Shelley's Textual Seductionsby Samuel Lyndon Gladden

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 52.95

    First published in 2002. This book surveys how and to what effect Shelley uses erotic narratives to mask political rhetoric within his attempts to describe and bring forth utopia. Posing erotic relationships as both an exemplar of the inequities of power and a paradigm for alternative social orders that dismantle oppressive structures, it argues Shelley?s... more...

  • Shelley's Styleby William Keach

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 52.95

    First published 1984. In a provocative study, this book argues that the problems posed by Shelley?s notoriously difficult style must be understood in relation to his ambivalence towards language itself as an artistic medium ? the tension between the potential of language to mirror emotional experience and the recognition of it?s inevitable limitations.... more...

  • The Extinct Sceneby Thomas S. Davis

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 59.99

    In 1935, the English novelist Stephen Spender wrote that the historical pressures of his era should turn the reader?s and writer?s attention outwards from himself to the world.?
