    (August 4, 1792-1822)
    Wrote the pamphlet 'The Necessity of Atheism'
    He was neurotic and suffered from depression.
    He refused to admit he wrote 'The Necessity of Atheism,' which resulted in his expulsion from Oxford.
    He was a vegetarian.
    He was married twice before twenty-five.
    He was in love with his cousin Harriet and wanted to marry her.
    His first wife killed herself, some say because Percy left her to be with Mary (Wollstonecraft) Shelley.

    When he was young he was viciously tormented by bullies (they coined him 'Mad Shelley') because he refused to conform to the school's standards.

    He embraced new ideas.
    He invited poet John Keats, who was ill with consumption, to stay at the Shelleys' house in Italy.
