Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley (/ˈpɜrsi ˈbɪʃ ˈʃɛli/; 4 August 1792 – 8 July 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. A radical in his poetry as well as his political and social views, Shelley did not achieve fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley was a key member of a close circle of visionary poets and writers that included Lord Byron; Leigh Hunt; Thomas Love Peacock; and his own second wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.

    Child of Light! thy limbs are burning
    Through the vest which seems to hide them;
    As the radiant lines of morning
    Through the clouds ere they divide them;
    And this atmosphere divinest
    Shrouds thee wheresoe’er thou shinest.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    But pale despair and cold tranquillity,
    Nature’s vast frame, the web of human things,
    Birth and the grave, that are not as they were.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    The One remains, the many change and pass;
    Heaven’s light forever shines, Earth’s shadows fly;
    Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
    Stains the white radiance of Eternity,
    Until Death tramples it to fragments.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Within my heart is the lamp of love,
    And that is day!
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    He lives, he wakes,—’tis Death is dead, not he;
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
