The European Revolution broke out in 1848. There were impoverished people who strived for the freedom everywhere. Shelley is rebellious when he is a child. He pursues the individual freedom, the freedom of thought which is the common goal of people in his era. He merges the two into a whole. For this reason, he has endured the pains that the ordinary people could not have beared.
At first, the thesis introduces the social context, the living condition, and his characters. It introduces his living conditions from Field Place, the place where he was born, to Ireland, to Italy, and to Rome. These are the places he visited, and also are the road of the development of his mind. And then the thesis gives analysis to some of his master pieces such as: Queen Mab written in 1813 which shows the path of his mental development, and symbolizes the beginning of Shelley’s writing. As for his later works, The Revolt of Islam and The Cenci and Prometheus Unbound, they demonstrate that he tries to give an answer for the muttons by means of poem. He thinks the nature can give him inspiration. During his lifetime, he writes many poems about the nature, for example: To Skylark, Ode to West Wind, etc. In the end, it comes to the conclusion that no matter what difficulty Shelley faces, he does not give up easily. He holds to his convictions in his entire lifetime and never changes.
