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.

    Men of England, wherefore plough
    For the lords who lay ye low?
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    At night the passion came,
    Like the fierce fiend of a distempered dream,
    And shook him from his rest, and led him forth
    Into the darkness.—
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Hell is a city much like London—
    A populous and a smoky city;
    There are all sorts of people undone,
    And there is little or no fun done;
    Small justice shown, and still less pity.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life,... is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    As long as skies are blue, and fields are green
    Evening must usher night, night urge the morrow,
    Month follow month with woe, and year wake year to sorrow
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
