The Complete Poetry of Percy
Bysshe Shelley is intended to provide critically
edited texts of all the poems that Shelley released for
circulation, accompanied in Supplements by drafts and verse
fragments pertaining to these public poems. Following these
will be diplomatic texts of all Shelley's known poetry left
incomplete or unpolished at his death.
The released poems will usually appear
in the order in which Shelley transmitted them to their
intended audiences: each finished poem or poetic volume
will appear in a sequence based on the date that Shelley
either submitted that version to a press for publication or
(in the case of some poems containing sentiments reserved
for his intimate circle) prepared a finished copy for
perusal by the person(s) in his intended audience. These
poems are being edited critically to represent, as
accurately as the surviving evidence permits, the text that
Shelley intended his first reader(s) to see at the time he
released them. We try to correct errata in Shelley's
manuscripts and first editions, whether or not these were
later noted by the poet himself, as well as attempt to
uncover and extirpate errors of the press and later
editorial emendations that reflect the judgment of later
times and other consciousnesses, including Mary W.
