The last two decades have seen the business of researching and writing about Percy Bysshe Shelley change in positive and significant ways. Shelleyan characteristics which were once deemed negative are now reviewed as critically engaging qualities. "The New Shelley - Later Twentieth Century Views" is a collection of essays by some leading scholars of romantic literature which situates Shelley for our own age, not only by contextualizing him within our own scene of critical practice, but also by resituating him within his own scene of poetic production.
