This vintage book contains Percy Bysshe Shelley's seminal 1819 poem, "Masque of Anarchy". The poem, though written in a relaxed and familiar manner, is highly characteristic of Shelly's other works. It has the usual ardour of his tone, the unbounded sensibility by which he combines the most domestic with the most remote and fanciful images, as well as his signature patience. This volume is highly recommended for all poetry-lovers, and is a must-read for fans of Shelley's work. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
