There are a lot of situations in life when one looks back upon the many incidents and events that shape our lives and thinks about regrets, lessons learned and what they would do differently if they had known better then.

The lives of people usually follow the same pattern that his father or grandfather followed before him. When they meet someone they know or are familiar with, they greet the person albeit in a different manner for close friends and relatives than for just acquaintances.

Revolution is a dominant spirit in almost all the Romantic Poets. Percy Bysshe Shelley, a Romantic poet, is also called rebel for his idea of revolution in his poetry. He was one of the major English Romantic poets, and was regarded by some as the finest lyric, as well as epic, poet in the English language. HE was born in 4 August 1792 in Horsham, England. As the French Revolution dominated all politics in those years, unlike Wordsworth and Coleridge, Shelly never appalled by the ideals of revolution, though he was appalled by the dictatorship of Napoleon. Shelley only experienced the revolution at second hand through the books of various writers. When he looked back, all he could see was the flame of revolution still flickering in spite of the terror and disease. (more…)
