Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, - but it returneth.

Random Person of the Day: Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley (August 4, 1792 - July 8, 1822; pronounced /ˌpɝsi ˌbɪʃ ˈʃɛli/) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is widely considered to be among the finest lyric poets of the English language. He is perhaps most famous for such anthology pieces as Ozymandias , Ode to the West Wind , To a Skylark , and The Masque of Anarchy . However, his major works were long visionary poems including Alastor , Adonais , The Revolt of Islam , Prometheus Unbound and the unfinished The Triumph of Life.

Shelley's unconventional life and uncompromising idealism, combined with his strong skeptical voice, made him a notorious and much denigrated figure during his life. He became the idol of the next two or three generations of poets, including the major Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite poets Robert Browning, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, as well as William Butler Yeats and poets in other languages such as Jibanananda Das and Subramanya Bharathy. He was also admired by Karl Marx, Henry Stephens Salt, and Bertrand Russell. Famous for his association with his equally short-lived contemporaries John Keats and Lord Byron, he was married to novelist Mary Shelley.
