Rate this:
This epistemologically oriented analysis of Shelley's verse explores the poet's visionary enterprise and the emergence of the Shelleyan self. Shelley, once a candidate to become a physician, gave scientifically sound descriptions of the workings of the eyes and nervous system. The author, after surveying the literature, gives descriptions of Shelley's psychological and physiological features recorded by the poet himself. The operations of the poet's eyesight are seen to be linked to his imagery and use of language.
