Shelley identifies the poet is both the creature of age and the creator of age. It is true that the poet cannot but be affected by the ideology of his/her society, because he/she lives in the society. Meanwhile, the poet finds the future in the present. The thing which distinguishes the poet from common people is imagination. Imagination is the active capability of the mind that understands all the entities which cant be identified with human beings sensory perception. It is also the sympathetic power that relates to morality. So it serves as the power to love others. Shelley found the way that raised objection against the leading cognitive structure at that time from David Humes causal theory. By adding his own theory of imagination into it, he forms his identity as the poet who creates his own age in Mont Blanc and Hymn to Intellectual Beauty.
