Catalogue Note

Shelley writes in the Preface that "This Poem was chiefly written upon the mountainous ruins of the Baths of Caracalla... The bright sky of Rome, and the effect of the vigorous awakening spring in that divinest climate, and the new life with which it drenched the spirits even to intoxication, were the inspiration of this drama."
