Biography of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Žymaus poeto Percy Bysshe Shelley biografija (anglų kalba).


"Shelley was really a most extraordinary genius, the best and least selfish man I ever knew", wrote Byron in one of his letters.
Percy Bysshe Shelley was born at Field Place in Sussex. His father, a concervative country squire, could never understand his son who was a delicate nature, very modest and sensitive.
