This book makes the case for a re-placing of Lamb as reader, writer and friend in the midst of the lively political and literary scene of the 1790s. Reading his little-known early works alongside others by the likes of Coleridge and Wordsworth, it allows a revealing insight into the creative dynamics of early Romanticism.

"Shelley found a retreat on the Bay of Lerici where, joined by his friends Edward and Jane Williams, he sailed his new boat and confided darkening thoughts to Edward Trelawny. Shelley's love lyrics to Jane, his last inamorata, were written as he composed his final great work, The Triumph of Life, broken off by his untimely drowning, a controversial sailing tragedy that is considered here in detail. Shelley's fascinating posthumous life is narrated in the subsequent intermingled lives of the poet's most intimate associates."--BOOK JACKET.

In an engine of utmost mechanical strength.

Thus tortured and squeezed, at last it appears
Like a loose heap of ribbon, a glittering show,
Like music it tinkles and rings in your ears,
