§ From the introduction: “This ode, described as the most perfect of English lyrics, illustrates Shelley’s superior gift of expression. In 1819 he also composed Prometheus Unbound (cited as the most radiant of all Utopian visions), and The Cenci (greatest of the tragedies since Shakespeare). That these three poems, each taking a supreme place among its own kind, should have been produced by one man and in a single year of his life, is one of the astonishing accomplishments of literary biography.”.
