Shelley Pisa Liberty

 

'Percy Bysshe Shelley - A Humanist out of Time'

 

    An inspirational multimedia event

on Shelley's life and work

 

introduced by songwriter

and Shelley specialist John Webster

 john

With Shelley verses presented in a cycle of folk-rock songs

(‘an interesting and enjoyable way to encounter the lyrics’),

a narration voiced by Benjamin Zephaniah,

and images from Shelley locations in Italy,

this is an excellent opportunity to discover the scope and ambition

of the poet, often derided in his time, who looked forward

to a democratic, pluralist and secular future.

 

‘A fascinating, varied presentation'

 

Suitable for humanist groups

as well as literary, historical, philosophical

and other groups

at schools, colleges and universities
