    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

    Born into a wealthy family in Sussex, England, Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was expelled from Oxford for writing The Necessity of Atheism. His radical lifestyle at times detracted from the appreciation of his work. He called poets “the unacknowledged legislators of the world.” In Shelley’s short life he produced gorgeous lyrical poetry quintessential of the Romantic Era. He is perhaps best remembered for the mythical poem Prometheus Unbound and for Adonais, an elegy to his friend John Keats.

    Shelley found friendship with fellow poets John Keats and Lord George Gordon Byron as well as paving the way for future esteemed poets Robert Browning, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Lord Alfred Tennyson, and William Butler Yeats. His life and works are studied still and his influence lives on in the 21st century.

    Shelley continued to venture on sailing trips on his schooner ‘Don Juan’. It sank on 8 July 1822 in a storm and Shelley drowned, at the age of twenty-nine. His body washed ashore and he was cremated on the beach near Viareggio. The Shelley Memorial now stands at University College, Oxford, England, in honour of one of their most illustrious alumni. It features a white marble statue depicting Shelley as he appeared when washed ashore.

    Tribute.

    Romantical wanderings have flown from on high
    When Percy Bysshe Shelley first drew nigh.
    'Pon sailing ship with poetry flowing in its wake
    Yay! May that inspiration of yesteryear we take.
    Such lyrical romance and rambling truths
    Akin is the kismet that resided in our youths.

    Shelley is one of the Poets I love to quote, for his words always seem so magnificent and grandiose to me:

    Yeah! Nice insight!
