  摘要 This thesis aims to investigate Shelley’s vision of an ideal society and the methods he proposes to establish it in his poetry and prose. Two aspects will be discussed: one is Shelley’s ideals and the other is his action.
It is known that English Romanticism is a period when poets made outstanding literary achievements; nevertheless, at the same time, people also questioned the function of poetry and the role of a poet in society. To a great extent, most Romantic poets tried to prove this criticism wrong; however, rarely has a Romantic poet elucidated his envisioned society and proposed methods to achieve this ideal in poetry and prose as Shelley has. Hence, this thesis will examine not only the ideals shown in his poetry but also practical methods proposed in his prose.
Shelley tries to strike a balance between ideals and realities with a fundamental concept in his works, Shelleyan Love, an idea which is influenced by both Platonism and Christianity. To Shelley, this love should be applied in reality, so he proposes practical methods for improving the society. Besides, the combination of Platonism and Christianity enables Shelley to defend poetry as not merely an expression of ideals but also a medium for helping to improve society.
In the end of this thesis Shelley’s ideals and proposed methods will be evaluated from the viewpoint of feasibility. Through the study of Shelley’s ideals and social realities, I hope to study Shelley’s works as a whole from a new perspective.
