Notes to the Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe
"Obstacles have long existed to my presenting the public with a perfect edition of Shelley's Poems. These being at last happily removed; I hasten to fulfil an important duty; -- that of giving the productions of a sublime genius to the world; with all the correctness possible; and of; at the same time; detailing the history of those productions; as they sprang; living and warm; from his heart and brain. I abstain from any remark on the occurrences of his private life; except inasmuch as the passions which they engendered inspired his poetry. This is not the time to relate the truth; and I should reject any colouring of the truth." -Preface by Mary Shelley
