Shelley among others : the play of the intertext and the idea of language
The political dimension of Shelley's thought is grounded through often startling connections between his poems and the debates, events, and personalities of the time, and Peterfreund takes care to connect the theory of language which Shelley's work articulates with present-day literary theory, particularly in the writings of Lacan and Kristeva.
