The Real Shelley: New Views of the Poet's Life

The Real Shelley; New Views of the Poet's Life in two volumes is a biography of Percy Bysshe Shelley written by John Cordy Jeaffreson. Jeaffreson wrote the book in order to offer a new look on the life of famous poet, since many of Shelley enthusiasts and apologists made a significant effort to create the image of this fanciful and romantic Shelley. He undertook a challenge to refute poet's idolaters and their praises, and to portray the “Real Shelley,” exposed and without romantic illusions and false impressions.
