The World's Best English Epic Poetry Banner

The world’s best English epic and narrative poetry includes Shelley’s The Daemon of the World: substantially reworked from an earlier edition published under the title Queen Mab.

As Ianthe sleeps, one of the powerful Genii – a friendly Daemon or Spirit – descends to invite Ianthe’s spirit to come on a journey with him through the galactic voice. Ianthe’s spirit accepts, and – leaving her body behind – ascends into the Daemon’s chariot: which quickly transports them far from earth to see wonders concealed from the eyes of mortals.

  • Can Ianthe’s spirit regain her body once more? And if so – will she retain any memories of the mysteries which her spirit has seen?
