They say poetry is language at its most powerful. It speaks directly to the heart. It touches your soul in a way that nothing else can. And Percy Bysshe Shelley, an English romantic poet, is known for doing just that.

An underrated poet, Shelley did not receive much appreciation for what he wrote in his lifetime. But as they say, "You understand the importance of certain things only when they are gone," Shelley's work was recognized only after his death.

But what's great about his poems is the fact that they tug at your heartstrings and hold relevance even in modern times. Why don't you read on to believe it?
