Jon Kerr's Tuesday Verse

Tuesday Verse is a new feature of The Real Percy Bysshe Shelley that brings you close to his poetry and, occasionally, prose. Each Tuesday we will deliver to you a poem or excerpt of a poem which Romantic scholar Jon Kerr will offer some brief thoughts about.  Jon will also pair the offering with an image that may offer some context. We welcome suggestions for future posts as well as your own ideas about what you think Shelley is trying to accomplish with his verse. Enjoy!!

Jon is a recently graduated from the University of Toironto with his PhD in English literature with a specialization in the Romantics.  He is currently at Mount Alison University in New Brunswick, Canada on a post doc fellowship.
