Adonais is the first writing by Shelley which has been included in the Clarendon Press Series. It is a poem of convenient length for such a purpose; being neither short nor decidedly long; and -- leaving out of count some of the short poems -- is the one by this author which approaches nearest to being 'popular.' It is elevated in sentiment; classical in form; -- in substance; biographical in relation to Keats; and in some minor degree autobiographical for Shelley himself. On these grounds it claimed a reasonable preference over all his other poems; for the present method of treatment; although some students of Shelley; myself included; might be disposed to maintain that; in point of absolute intrinsic beauty and achievement; and of the qualities most especially characteristic of its author; it is not superior; or indeed is but barely equal; to some of his other compositions. To take; for instance; two poems not very different in length from Adonais -- The Witch of Atlas is more original; and Epipsychidion more abstract in ideal.
