percy bysshe shelley Reviews
I enjoyed this book even though Shelly is not one of my favourite poets.
First, William Meredith writes a brief but useful essay to put Shelley's works into a context. He neither overpraises the poet nor dismisses him as overrated. Second, it's the poetry itself that is crucial for any such volume. On page 28, we come across a poem that I think is wonderful, "Mutability." This indicates that there are few constants, and closes with a couple wonderful lines: "Man's yesterday may ne'er be like his morrow; Naught may endure but mutability." Brief, but telling. One of my favorite of Shelley's poems. Then, perhaps, my favorite poem of all: "Ozymandias." What a wonderful warning against the Greeks' tragic flaw of hubris. The final five lines say it all: "'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty and despair!' Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away." Powerful stuff, speaking to the futility of those who are arrogant. And so many more poems. . . . The anti-war poem, "Similes for Two Political Characters in 1819," which closes with the line: "Two vipers tangled into one." I once used one of his poems, "To Sophia [Miss Stacey:]," in a letter to a special person in my life at that time. And, at this point in my life, his lament about aging, "A Lament," takes on some poignancy. And so on. . . . This is a special slim little volume that I bought decades ago, but it still resonates.
