Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was a Romantic poet whose contemporaries included Keats and Byron. Although famous for his long work Prometheus Unbound, his genius also shines in shorter poems; you can read several of these on the EIL site:

“Mont Blanc”

“Ode to the West Wind”

“To a Sky-Lark”

“Ozymandias”
