More Information
Percy Shelley was born in Sussex, England, on 4th August 1792 and educated at Eton and Oxford. He had a short and explosive life which is well documented and certainly beyond the scope of this passage. His work is of great importance and, as so often happens, has enjoyed its greatest acclaim posthumously. Collecting many of the items listed in the bibliography is now all but impossible, though some of the books and desirable reissues are more attainable.
