A Digest of Percy Bysshe Shelley

Percy Bysshe Shelley (Broadbridge Heath, Sussex, West England, 4th August 1792 - Livorno, Italy, 8th  July 1822)

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Percy Bysshe Shelley, icon of romantic literature. 

Shelley has appeared at the Guide on several occasions and so, to mark the anniversary, I thought I would revisit some of those posts today.
