P.B. Shelley: A humanist par excellence
Percy Bysshe Shelley’s ever-spark thought seems to have made out of him an ideal rebel, reformer and revolutionist against inequality, tyranny and oppression whether it’s individual or institutional. He possibly appears to be molded with delicate sensitivity, all-embracing humanity, deep imagination, fulsome freedom, sound views and penetrating insight. He has advocated the rights of the rightless or those who have been de-righted. Shelley looks to have decided to set his mind and dedicate his thundering voice and swordy pen to correct and relieve declined humanity. The poet’s revolutionized-spirit perhaps watered and rained a cosmopolitan support of freedom, democracy and philanthropy as well as to peacefully topple tyrants and oppressors everywhere else. Shelley has non-violently been looking for the day on which all people will embody humanity in the full sense of the word to live in peace and appreciate bounty of co-existence. As a matter of fact, Shelley who probably found in women all source of goodness- enhances and embodies intact values that mold and model a person free of mental, psychological and bodily constrains. This paper may definitely re-construct the poet not only as a right activist but also expose his philosophy of peaceful rebelling and vengeance abandonment.
