Milner, opens at the Royal Coberg Theatre for a run of eight performances. She works on this project off and on over the next few years, and The Letters and Journals of Lord Byron: With Notices of His Life is published in Afterwards, she calls herself Jane Williams Hogg, even though she is still legally married to her first husband.
He had gone out in a boat to Leghorn to welcome Leigh Hunt to Italy, and while returning on the eighth of July,the boat sank in the Bay of Spezia, and all on board perished. When his body floated to shore a volume of Keats' poetry was found open in Shelley's coat pocket.
The remains were reduced to ashes and deposited in the Protestant burial ground at Rome, near those of a child he had lost in that city. His father was a member of the House of Commons. The family line could be traced back to one of the followers of William of Normandy.
Thus in noble blood Shelley was more fortunate than most of his brother poets, considering the estimate that England placed upon the distinction of caste. He had all the advantages of wealth and rank, and hence much was expected of him. At the age of ten Shelley was placed in the public school of Sion House, but the harsh treatment of instructors and school-fellows rendered his life most unpleasant.
Such treatment might have been called out by his fondness for wild romances and his devotion to reading instead of more solid school work.
While very young he wrote two novels, "Zastrozzi" and "St.
Irvyne, or the Rosicrucian," works of some merit. Shelley was next sent to Eton, where his sensitive nature was again deeply wounded by ill usage. He finally revolted against all authority, and this disposition manifested itself strongly in Eton.
Shelley next went to Oxford, but he studied irregularly, except in his peculiar views, where he seemed to be constant in his thought and speculations. At the age of fifteen, he wrote two short romances, threw off various political effusions, and published a volume of political rhymes entitled "Posthumous Poems of My Aunt Margaret Nicholson," the said Margaret being the unhappy maniac who attempted to stab George III.
He also issued a syllabus of Hume's "Essays," and at the same time challenged the authorities of Oxford to a public discussion of the subject. He was only seventeen at the time.
In company with Mr. Hogg, a fellow-student, he composed a treatise entitled "The Necessity of Atheism. Hogg removed to York, while Shelley went to London, where he still received support from his family.
His expulsion from Oxford led also to an inexcusable confusion in his social life. He had become strongly attached to Miss Grove, an accomplished young lady, but after he was driven from college her father prohibited communication between them.
He next became strongly attached to Miss Harriet Westbrook, a beautiful lady of sixteen, but of social position inferior to his. An elopement soon followed, and a marriage in August, Shelley's father was so enraged at this act that he cut off his son's allowance.
His literary ambition must have been excited by this intercourse; but he suddenly departed for Dublin, whence he again removed to the Isle of Man, and afterward to Wales. After they had been married three years and two children were born to them they separated.
In March,Shelley was married a second time to Harriet Westbrook, the ceremony taking place in St. George's Church, Hanover Square. Unfortunately, about this time the poet became enamored of the daughter of Mr.
Accordingly he was enabled to raise money with which he purchased an annuity from his father.
He again repaired to the continent inwhen he met Lord Byron at Lake Geneva. Later he returned to England and settled at Great Marlow, in Buckinghamshire. His unfortunate wife committed suicide by drowning herself in the Serpentine River in December,and Shelley married Miss Godwin a few weeks afterward December Leaving his unfortunate social career, we come now to consider his poetical works.MARY SHELLEY'S EDITION OF SHELLEY'S ESSAYS, LETTERS FROM ABROAD, TRANSLATIONS AND FRAGMENTS, IN ORIGINAL CLOTH.
