Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1827) was an English Romantic poet who rebelled against English politics and conservative values of his time.
And like a dying lady, lean and pale,
Who totters forth, wrapp'd in a gauzy veil,
Out of her chamber, led by the insane
And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
The moon arose up in the murky East,
A white and shapeless mass
