P.B.Shelley was one of the Great Romantics who was socially conscious.Inspite of being a passionate individual who was more engaged with his personal feelings than with the world outside,Shelley dreamed of a revolution that would sweep away all social evils and social tyranny and recreate a better society.The symbol of this revolutionary force was the wild West Wind-the' breath of autumn's being'.He was impatient to bring in a change and revolt against tyranny like Prometheus.He was impatient,he was revolutionary,but at the same time he was a lyricist who celebrated his passion which was- "The desire of the moth for the star,of the night for the morrow/The devotion to something afar from the sphere of our sorrow."
