In Esperanto:

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822), amiko de Byron, ankaŭ pasigis siajn lastajn jarojn sinekzila en ltalio. Lia persona vivo estis serio de tragikaj eraroj, fontantaj pli el ne prudentaj idealoj ol el kruda egoismo; lia frua morto malebligis finevoluadon de potenca intelekto kaj luma poezia genio. Pionira liberpensulo, vegetarano, liberigemulo plurrilata, li havis riĉan fantazion kaj belege esprimis misterojn kaj ekstazojn de amo, naturamo, libereco. La nuna Antologio donas specimenojn de lia delikata lirika talento; sed pli gravas liaj longaj. poemoj mitofaraj, tri poeziaj dramoj — por la scenejo de la menso pli ol la teatro — kaj kelkaj majestaj odoj.
