Talk:Percy Bysshe Shelley
I was always under the impression that it was just called "Ozymandias," not "Ozymandias of Egypt." No?
Why exactly are the quotes by Salt featured? His wishful thinking that Shelley was somehow rediscovering god are disproved within the very poems he cites as evidence (e.g. Hellas, which Holmes recognised as "one of the most sophisticated and historically mature statements of Shelley's atheism"). If we feature Salt we may as well quote all the 19th and 20th century reactionaries who disguised their distaste for his politics as literary criticisms. 220.127.116.11 21:23, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
- The second quote by Salt concludes with "There is no warrant whatever in his writings for the strange pretension that, had he lived longer, his objections to Christianity might in some way have been overcome." This sounds opposite to his allegedly believing in "wishful thinking that Shelley was somehow rediscovering god." - InvisibleSun 22:02, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
