Writing to his publisher in 1813, Shelley expressed the hope that two of his major works should form one volume; nearly two centuries later, the second volume of the Johns Hopkins edition of The Complete Poetry fulfills that wish for the first time. This volume collects two important pieces: Queen Mab and The Esdaile Notebook. ... The poems are presented as Shelley intended, with textual variants included in footnotes. Following the poems are extensive discussions of the circumstances of their composition and the influences they reflect; their publication or circulation by other means; their reception at the time of publication and in the decades since; their re-publication, both authorized and unauthorized; and their place in Shelley's intellectual and aesthetic development. --Johns Hopkins University Press.Esd# and Title Lines in Poem Line Count in Text PBSa#39;s Line Count PBSs Line Count, Revised Stanzas Lines per Stanza Length of ... 2648 2632 3 8-8-7 30 6 tetrameter ababccddb tetrameter; stanzas 1 aamp; 2: last line of rhymed third stanza couplets; is trimeter stanza 3: ... the amount PBS would have arrived at had his math been correct (the addition of 1 8o lines from Esd #49 minus a 49-line correction) .
