    The vessel, an open boat, was custom-built in Genoa for Shelley. Here pause: these graves are all too young as yet To have outgrown the sorrow which consigned Its charge to each; and if the seal is set, Here, on one fountain of a mourning mind, Break it not thou! I shall confine myself to tracing the chief outlines of Shelley's life, and very briefly the sequence of his literary work. His extreme opinions on questions of religion and morals, and the great latitude which he allowed himself in acting according to his own opinions, however widely they might depart from the law of the land and of society, could not but produce this result. In Moschus, groves and gardens, nymphs, Echo, the Loves, towns and cities, the muse, and pastoral poets mourn for Bion.

    The use of ancient mythology suggests that Shelley sees Keats as a truly majestic figure, as the rest of the poem demonstrates. In Stanzas 30 through 34, a series of human mourners appears. Here they received two visitors, a Sophia Stacey and her much older travelling companion, Corbet Parry-Jones to be described by Mary as "an ignorant little Welshwoman". What deaf and viperous murderer could crown Life's early cup with such a draught of woe? Thy hopes are gone before: from all things here They have departed; thou shouldst now depart! It comes and mourns at his bidding sts.

    He calls on Urania to mourn for Keats who died in Rome sts. Shelley would often use a frictional electric machine to charge the door handle of his room, much to the amusement of his friends. His extreme opinions on questions of religion and morals, and the great latitude which he allowed himself in acting according to his own opinions, however widely they might depart from the law of the land and of society, could not but produce this result. William Godwin inby James Northcote During this period, Shelley travelled to Keswick in England's Lake Districtwhere he visited the poet Robert Southeyunder the mistaken impression that Southey was still a political radical. Assume thy winged throne, thou Vesper of our throng! Lost Echo sits amid the voiceless mountains, And feeds her grief with his remembered lay, And will no more reply to winds or fountains, Or amorous birds perched on the young green spray, Or herdsman's horn, or bell at closing day; Since she can mimic not his lips, more dear Than those for whose disdain she pined away Into a shadow of all sounds: -a drear Murmur, between their songs, is all the woodmen hear.

Shelleys Adonais book

His head was bound with pansies overblown, And faded violets, white, and pied, and blue; And a light spear topped with a cypress cone, Round whose rude shaft dark ivy-tresses grew Yet dripping with the forest's noonday dew, Vibrated, as the ever-beating heart Shook the weak hand that grasped it; of that crew He came the last, neglected and apart; A herd-abandoned deer struck by the hunter's dart.
