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.

Famous quotes containing the words percy bysshe shelley, percy bysshe, bysshe shelley, shelley and/or bysshe:

    When hearts have one mingled,
    Love first leaves the well-built nest;
    The weak one is singled
    To endure what it once possessed.
    O Love! who bewailest
    The frailty of all things here,
    Why choose you the frailest,
    For your cradle, your home, and your bier.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Yes, marriage is hateful, detestable. A kind of ineffable, sickening disgust seizes my mind when I think of this most despotic, most unrequited fetter which prejudice has forged to confine its energies.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    The gigantic shadows which futurity casts upon the present.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Love is free; to promise for ever to love the same woman is not less absurd than to promise to believe the same creed; such a vow in both cases excludes us from all inquiry.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    I felt my cheek
    Alter, to see the shadow pass away,
    Whose grasp had left the giant world so weak
    That every pigmy kicked it as it lay;
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
