Prometheus unbound, a variorum edition by Percy Bysshe Shelley( Book )

173 editions published between 1819 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prometheus Unbound is a four act lyric play it was not written to be performed as a play but staged within the imagination of the reader. It is a reply to Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound which has the hero stealing fire from the gods to give to mortals. Many think this work is Shelley's masterpiece as it represents a culmination of the poet's political thought and displays his considerable gift of lyrical expression. The play was written over 4 years as its progress was severely impeded by the tragic death of first his daughter Clara Everina in 1818 and then his son William in 1819. The fourth act, a warning that evil must be checked lest tyranny reign, was added many months after the first three had been completed and revised. Shelley compares his Prometheus to Milton's Satan in Paradise Lost: But Prometheus is, as it were, the type of the highest perfection of moral and intellectual nature, impelled by the purest and the truest motives to the best and noblest ends

156 editions published between 1821 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron are generally considered the second generation of the great English Romantic poets. Shelley was an admirer of Keats's work, and though a few of the letters they exchanged reveal the somewhat rocky nature of their friendship, Shelley graciously invited Keats to join him at his residence at Pisa as his health declined. Keats, instead, removed himself to Rome, where he succumbed to tuberculosis in a villa on the Spanish Steps. Immediately after hearing of his death, Shelley began to compose Adonaïs, an elegy to Keats that is now considered among Shelley's best and most renowned works. Along with Shelley's achingly beautiful tribute, this 1891 volume features brief memoirs of both Shelley and Keats, cancelled passages of the poem, and extensive analysis by English writer and critic William Michael Rossetti
