Overview

Percy Bysshe Shelley was a major English Romantic poet, regarded as one of the finest lyric poets in the English language. Tragically, he died in a shipwreck when he was just 29. His vast poetic powers were extinguished before they reached maturity; nevertheless, his work earned him a place among the greatest poets of England. He was not widely recognized during his lifetime, but was idolized in successive generations by Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, Bertrand Russell, W. B. Yeats, Karl Marx, and Upton Sinclair. The Select Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley contains all of Shelley’s published poetry and drama, juvenilia, and translations, as well as four classic biographies from respected literary critics and contemporaries.

Praise for Shelley

Of all the forms or kinds of poetry the two highest are the lyric and the dramatic . . . as clearly as the first place in the one rank is held among us by Shakespeare, the first place in the other is held and will never be resigned by Shelley.

—Algernon Charles Swinburne

About Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822) was a major English Romantic poet, regarded as one of the finest lyric poets in the English language. He was well-provided-for in youth, though he was the subject of much bullying. He attended University College, Oxford, where he barely attended lectures but read extensively and published two collections of poetry while still a student. He married Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein and daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft. His poem Masque of Anarchy represents one of the earliest modern expressions of nonviolent resistance, influencing the likes of Henry David Thoreau and Mahatma Gandhi.
