Volume 2 of 2. These volumes present a biographical account of the
life and work of Percy Bysshe Shelley, one of the greatest English
romantic poets. Percy's life was singularly interesting and
diverse. His friends unanimously testify that his character was one
of gentleness, purity, generosity and strong affection. As a poet,
he stands in the front rank and in some of his shorter poems he is
unsurpassed. During his short, but wholly eventful life, Percy was
expelled from Oxford with his friend Thomas Jefferson Hogg for
circulating a pamphlet entitled "The Necessity of Atheism"; married
Harriet Westbrook, who later committed suicide; then eloped with
Mary Wollstone, the daughter of William Godwin, to which Shelley
was a disciple. Even his death was fascinating...he was lost in a
storm while sailing back from Pisa, his body washing ashore and
later burned on a pyre.
