By Robert Cooperman
Utilizing a sequence of dramatic monologues and verse letters, Robert Cooperman explores the private and non-private personae (the fact past facts/that purely litter) of the poet and political philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. In poems wealthy with interval element and mental perception, Cooperman unearths Shelley as a guy torn through the will for greatness, the will for romance, and the will to be unfastened. He portrays the non-public Shelley, pushed to discover a soul-mate and to espouse the assumption of loose love in a mercantile society, but an idealist who by no means particularly realised that his activities may have disastrous results for these he enjoyed.

Page 16 John Philpot Curran Comments on Shelley's Pamphlet: An Address to the Irish People Typical of the English, to tell us what's to our best advantage before their feet sink into Irish peat. Where was this witless calf of the gentry when Wolfe Tone died in prison by his own good hand to keep a red-coat butcher from tightening a noose around his neck? And didn't I defend the United Irishmen while this Bysshe was still slapping his tutor's face with white fingers? Judge Hardy did his best to condemn me along with the others, but my voice sang so greenly grand for Ireland and reason even Hanging Hardy had to let us all go.

Had she desired his pig-filthy hands on her, I would have applauded her flaunting the chattel laws of wedded whoredom, but for him to degrade our heaven of love made me rage higher than the flames we kept up in the grates, our rooms chilled like Matterhorn crevasses. Two days we stood that hole; rain like cannonade on the lead roof, Mary and Jane she-cats spitting over a tom; Mary never understood Jane needed soft talk before bed when the horrours crept over her like the rats that nibbled her fingers in the auberge at Troyes, so vile a lair a wonder the vermin themselves didn't decamp.
