Shelleyana!! My Father's Shelley, Part Two

Shelleyana!! My Father's Shelley, Part Two

Shelley had an enormous impact on me and my dad's life - though we had radically different ideas about exactly who Shelley was (which was the subject of part one of this essay). I want to explore this theme by digging into a photographic album I discovered among my father's effects after he died.  It is a slim volume entitled "Shelleyana".  I think we will find much to reflect upon, and Shelley may perhaps seem less remote and more immediate.
