            Shelley: The Poet of Rebellion, Nature, and Love (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This greatest of our lyric poets, the culmination of the Romantic Movement in English literature, appeared in an age which, following on the series of successful wars that had established British power all over the world, was one of the gloomiest in our history. If in some ways t...he England of 1800-20 was ahead of the rest of Europe, in others it lagged far behind. The Industrial Revolution, which was to turn us from a nation of peasants and traders into a nation of manufacturers, had begun; but its chief fruits as yet were increased materialism and greed, and politically the period was one of blackest reaction. Alone of European peoples we had been untouched by the tide of Napoleon's conquests, which, when it receded from the Continent, at least left behind a framework of enlightened institutions, while our success in the Napoleonic wars only confirmed the ruling aristocratic families in their grip of the nation which they had governed since the reign of Anne. This despotism crushed the humble and stimulated the high-spirited to violence, and is the reason why three such poets as Byron, Landor, and Shelley, though by birth and fortune members of the ruling class, were pioneers as much of political as of spiritual rebellion. Unable to breathe the atmosphere of England, they were driven to live in exile.

            In the case of most great writers our interest in them as persons is derived from out interest in them as writers; we are not very curious about them except for reasons that have something to do with their art. With Shelley it is different. During his life he aroused fears and ha...treds, loves and adorations, that were quite irrelevant to literature; and even now, when he has become a classic, he still causes excitement as a man. His lovers are as vehement as ever. For them he is the banner of freedom, which, Torn but flying, Streams like a thunder-cloud against the wind. He has suffered that worst indignity of canonisation as a being saintly and superhuman, not subject to the morality of ordinary mortals. He has been bedaubed with pathos. Nevertheless it is possible still to recognise in him one of the most engaging personalities that ever lived. What is the secret of this charm? He had many characteristics that belong to the most tiresome natures; he even had the qualities of the man as to whom one wonders whether partial insanity may not be his best excuse-inconstancy expressing itself in hysterical revulsions of feeling, complete lack of balance, proneness to act recklessly to the hurt of others

As originally published, De Quincey's account was organized in two parts: Part I begins with a notice To the reader , to establish the narrative framework: Here I present you, polite reader, with the record of a remarkable period in my life ... , followed by the substance of Part I, Preliminary Confessions, dedicated to the author's childhood and youth, and focused on the emotional and psychological factors that underlie subsequent experiences with opium, especially the period in his teens that De Quincey spent as a homeless fugitive on Oxford Street in London in 1802 and 1803.Part II is divided into several sections: A relatively brief introduction and a connecting passage, followed by The Pleasures of Opium, which analyzes the early and largely positive phase of the author's experience with the drug, from 1804 to 1812; Introduction to the Dolores del Opio, which offers a second installment of autobiography, taking De Quincey from youth to maturity.

            My life is a lovely story, happy and full of incident. If, when I was a boy, and went forth into the world poor and friendless, a good fairy had met me and said, Choose now thy own course through life, and the object for which thou wilt strive, and then, according to the developm...ent of thy mind, and as reason requires, I will guide and defend thee to its attainment, my fate could not, even then, have been directed more happily, more prudently, or better. The history of my life will say to the world what it says to me-There is a loving God, who directs all things for the best.My native land, Denmark, is a poetical land, full of popular traditions, old songs, and an eventful history, which has become bound up with that of Sweden and Norway. The Danish islands are possessed of beautiful beech woods, and corn and clover fields: they resemble gardens on a great scale. Upon one of these green islands, Funen, stands Odense, the place of my birth. Odense is called after the pagan god Odin, who, as tradition states, lived here: this place is the capital of the province, and lies twenty-two Danish miles from Copenhagen.
