First published in 1914, “Shelley - An Essay” is a treatise on the life and work of English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley by Francis Thompson. Francis Thompson (1859–1907) was an English mystic and poet. Thompson went to medical school when he was 18, but left home at the age of 26 to pursue a life of writing. He was homeless for three years, becoming an opium addict and supporting himself through whatever means available. A married couple read his poetry and took him into their home 1888, and in 1893 he published his first book, “Poems”. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in Percy Bysshe Shelley and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Thompson's work. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a chapter from Benjamin Franklin Fisher's “Francis Thompson, Essays” (1917).
