    Mark Twain was right. Shelley had the bad habit of deserting his consorts and leaving them pregnant or burdened with his children. He also had the bad habit of borrowing money he never intended to pay back. He was probably a bit of a laudanum addict, accounting for his hallucinations. He was thoroughly capable of lying, dissembling and pitching a fit. Reality sometimes seems to have escaped him. He sounds to have had a personality disorder. His father disowned him. Had he survived, he could probably have been charged with manslaughter in the drowning death of his friend Williams. His death probably prevented a divorce from his wife, in that relatively divorceless age.His under-the-table immorality made his friend, the noisier Byron seem like a model of integrity. Alas, he was not at all a better poet than the Byron of Don Juan, but he is a supreme and curiously unsentimental lyricist. Sorry- Promethius Unbound is boring, by stretches.

    Percy Bysshe Shelley is the reason why I started writing poetry, why I began loving and living verse. Audacious, uncompromising and beautifully lyrical, he is the one of the most profound and versatile poets in the English language, perhaps THE greatest of English literature. For all the intellectual persecution he faced in his lifetime for his radical beliefs and ideals, his works have transcended ages and will, in the future, continue to enchant Mankind and infuse men with their sonorousness, felicity and deep philosophy.
    The Greatest Romantic of Them All!

    percy shelly is the greatest poet of all time. His choice of words and the metaphors portrayed are fantastic. If you really want to read some of his greatest thoughts then read his fragments on this page

    Shelley, though largely unacknowledged then and now, is one of the greats. A better poet than Byron and far more prolific and wide-ranging and imaginative than John Keats, for all his loveliness.
    Please read my poem 'Seashells From The Seashore' about him and his struggle for recognition.

Best Poem of Percy Bysshe Shelley

Ode To The West Wind


O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,

Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red,
Pestilence-stricken multitudes: O thou,
Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed

The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low,
Each like a corpse within its grave, until
Thine azure sister of the Spring shall blow

Her clarion o'er the dreaming earth, and fill
(Driving sweet buds like flocks to feed in air)
With living hues and odors plain and ...

To Coleridge

Oh! there are spirits of the air,
And genii of the evening breeze,
And gentle ghosts, with eyes as fair
As star-beams among twilight trees:
Such lovely ministers to meet
Oft hast thou turned from men thy lonely feet.

With mountain winds, and babbling springs,
And moonlight seas, that are the voice
