Percy Bysshe Shelley

Biography:Percy Bysshe Shelley (August 4, 1792 - July 8, 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is widely considered to be among the finest lyric poets who wrote in 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, 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 in his own life. He became the idol of the next two or three generations of poets (including the major Victorian poets Robert Browning, Alfred Tennyson, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, William Butler Yeats and Subramanya Bharathy(tamil poet)). He was also famous for his association with the contemporaries John Keats and Lord Byron. An untimely death at a young age was common to all three. He was married to the famous novelist Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein.
