about

Volume I of this major critical edition of Shelley's prose - the first since the Julian Edition (1926-30) - provides authoritative texts of The Necessity of Atheism, the Irish pamphlets, the vegetarian essays, The Assassins, A Refutation of Deism, On Christianity, the `Hermit of Marlow'political writings, and several reviews. The texts, which are based on first editions and manuscripts, were all written between Shelley's last months in Oxford in 1811 and his departure for Italy in 1818: they preserve his original punctuation and spelling, and textual notes give copy-text variants,revisions, and deletions. In addition, the Introduction supplies a full account of previous editions, and places the prose pieces in their political context; and the commentary pays particular attention to the problems of dating the manuscripts. The commentary also contains more detailed copy-text descriptions, morethorough accounts of provenance, and more information on sources and allusions, than any previous edition of the works.

Editorial Reviews

`This is the first volume of what is likely to become the authoritative edition of Shelley's prose. What is new ... is the editorial scrupulousness and scholarly expertise with which these texts are presented ... this edition provides new information concerning the literary relations betweenShelley and Mary Shelley ... This edition is not only essential reading for students of Shelley and his circle, but also a valuable resource for those interested in the wider issues of textual transmission and literary authorship in the Romantic period.'Pamela Clemit, University of Durham, Notes and Queries, June 1996
