Write The First Customer Review

This authoritative edition of Shelley's "The Cenci" is based on the first edition of 1819, and incorporates Shelley's errata. This is the first edition ever to present the text as Shelley intended it, rather than based on the emendations of later editors, such as his wife, Mary Shelley, who revised the text after his death. This edition also includes a new introduction, extensive annotation, and appendices containing contextual and intertextual information and the text of contemporary reviews.
