Description

This study assesses the importance of the mother-infant relationship in Percy Bysshe Shelley's poetry and life. Additionally, it uses Shelley as a touchstone by which to examine the rich historial and theoretical issues relevant to motherhood during the Romantic period. By combining psychoanalytic, post-structuralist and feminist theory with extensive biographical material on Shelley and information on the position of mothers in England after 1790, the author offers a reassessment of Shelley's avowed feminism and the failure of the utopian vision.show more
