A poet of ideas in search of human truths in all their forms, Shelley punctuated the romantics with his expressive style. Selected Poetry punctuates his writing career with a solid selection that tells of its maker's passion and range. Intense, idealistic and personal, his poetry has all the energy of youth and ambition. It's quite remarkable that these poems, written so long ago, can still capture readers with their charm. Maybe it is Shelley's eagle eyes, which narrow in on the precise sense of the human spirit, or maybe it's his awareness and stylistic sensibility, which effortlessly triggers our own feelings.
