Percy Bysshe Shelley
Birth: Aug. 4, 1792
Broadbridge Heath
Horsham District
West Sussex, England
Death: Jul. 8, 1822, At Sea

Poet. One of the great English poets of the romantic period. Author of "Queen Mab," "Adonais," "Ozymandias" and others. Husband of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. His heart was not originally buried with his body. It was retrieved from his funeral pyre by his friend Trelawny and kept by Shelley's wife Mary, pressed flat, in a copy of the poet's "Adonais" and was interred for the first time in her tomb in St. Peters', Bournemouth. (bio by: David Conway)
