Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was an English poet and writer; he is regarded as one of the most important English Romantic poets. Born to a wealthy family, Shelley had a troubled youth. His studies at Eton were poor, and at nineteen he eloped with a 16-year old. He later abandoned his first wife and married Mary Wollstonecraft, the author of FRANKENSTEIN. Shelley drowned in Italy just before his thirtieth birthday.
