Pressestimmen'Cian Duffy's book is important for its refutation of the popularly held belief that Shelley's early materialism gave way to a Berkeleyan idealism ... its correction of the conventional view that Kant is the source of Shelley's responses to the sublime ... impressive ... in its relation of canonical to marginal texts ... as well as its highly persuasive extended readings of these texts. Duffy's accessible style allows Shelley's ideas to be seen clearly.' Times Literary Supplement '... [a] scrupulously argued and impressively researched monograph.' Bars Bulletin & Review
