Overview

This book addresses the significance of the mother-infant relationship in Percy Bysshe Shelley's poetry and life, with Shelley as the focus for a study of the rich historical and theoretical issues relevant to motherhood in the Romantic period. Gelpi offers a derailed account of the historical rise in attention paid to mothering, the changing cultural attitudes towards the role of the mother, and the resulting effect on the nature of family life. Shelley's Goddess combines psychoanalytic, poststructuralist and feminist theory with extensive biographical material, information on motherhood in England after 1790, and a detailed reading of Prometheus Unbound, in an important reassessment of Shelley's avowed feminism and the failure of his utopian vision.
