Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) is one of the greatest of all English-language poets, and one of the central figures of the Romantic movement. A friend to Byron and Keats, many critics believe that his literary achievement surpassed even theirs. A passionate advocate of political and sexual liberty, he was notorious in his time for his radical views, but after his tragic early death he finally achieved the fame he deserved – in large part thanks to his wife, the novelist Mary Shelley. His best-known poems include Ozymandias, Ode to the West Wind, To a Skylark, Music, When Soft Voices Die, The Cloud and The Masque of Anarchy. He was also the author of longer works, such as Queen Mab, Alastor, The Revolt of Islam, The Cenci and Prometheus Unbound – all now recognised as among the greatest masterpieces of modern poetry.
