The Revolt Of Islam

Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Revolt of Islam is a long narrative poem written by the English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. The poem tells the story of a young woman named Laon, who leads a rebellion against a tyrannical ruler named Mammon in a fictional Eastern land. Laon is aided in her quest by a group of followers, including her lover, Cythna. The poem explores themes of freedom, revolution, and the struggle against oppression. Shelley's writing is characterized by his lyrical language, vivid imagery, and his philosophical reflections on the nature of power and society.
