Front Cover
Haskell House, 1931 - Poets, English - 308 pages
0 Reviews
Without professing to be a complete biography of Shelley this book claims to present the manifestations in his character & career of the two impulses named in the title. He is first the enthusiast, in revolt against religion, parental authority, & the conventions of society; then the combatant, in arms against the human world of his environment; then the sufferer; losing the fight for everything but fame.
