Abstract

"The interest in a study of the philosophy of Shelley does not lie in the hope of discovering anything new, since there is little in anyone's belief that is without historic parallel. Rather, the sources of such an interest are first, the medium of poetry through which Shelley expressed his belief, and secondly, the transference of these beliefs into the acts of his life. It is to a consideration of the first of these that this paper is limited. Biographical facts will be used only for the elucidation of the theories expressed in his poems. Briefly, the purpose of this essay is to show that Shelley embodied in many of his poems his belief in: (1) the strength of the human will in overcoming the wrong, and in leading to action; (2) the use of reason in the rectifying of all evils; and (3) the power of love to create, inspire, and perfect"--Introduction, page 1.
