After Teresa being introduced to Shelley on November 29, 1820, her intelligence and the seeming neglect by her parents won his sympathy. Her plight stirred Shelley`s imagination and inspired him to idealize her as "Emily" in Epipsychidion. Emily is a woman idealized beyond her actual nature into a portrait of the antitype for which the beau ideal within the Poet is seeking. His love for Emily is the love of his internal "psychidion" for her central soul. In the three main movements of Epipsychidion Shelley identifies "Emily" as the human incarnation of the Ideal and proposes that his psychidion and that of Emily be joined in a union uninhibited either by social conventions or by the very encumbrances of others. In the envoy, however, the Poet makes clear that the real achievement of his inner being lies in its projection of itself, not in a pseudo-erotic union with a woman`s soul, but in the creation of the poem. Since Shelley had come to realize that seeking in a mortal form something that must remain eternal and union with that Ideal were impossible, he could place all his happiness in his poetry which would praise the Idea.
