Shelley and SynesthesiaPublic Deposited
Glenn OMalleys Shelley and Synesthesia examines a little-known aspect of Percy Shelleys poetry, offering a history of synesthesia and engaging in close readings of Shelleys poetry, focusing primarily on his longer works. OMalley explores the internal structure of Shelleys poems to concentrate on patterns of imagery and symbolism, bringing attention to Shelleys resourcefulness and responsibility in his use of synesthesia and his development of it into a powerful creative tool. The work advances the conversation on literary synesthesia and brings fresh insights to Shelleys poems and to poetic theory in Romanticism.
