Praise

"Intensely imaginative. . . . A biography that reads like poetry itself. . . . Wroe manages to get inside Shelley’s head." —Providence Journal"If you are a fan of Percy Bysshe Shelley, you will love Anne Wroe’s Being Shelley. . . . Her approach topples conventions. . . . She climbs inside his head." —The Plain Dealer“An extraordinary feat of scholarship. . . . A risky but singularly exhilarating book.” —Richard Holmes, The Guardian"Visionary . . . daring . . . [Being Shelley] is anchored gracefully in biographical and textual detail." —The Atlantic"Enthrallingly readable. . . . A magnificent book from an extraordinarily intuitive and gifted writer. . . . The biographer’s achievement is on a par with that of her subject, which is no mean accomplishment indeed."—Georgia Review "Daringly experimental. . . . Wroe delivers Shelley’s imaginative and creative life in all its perplexing brilliance."—Booklist (starred review)
