Shelley attended University College, Oxford, but was expelled for writing "The Necessity of Atheism." He was married to Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, author of "Frankenstein." Shelley died in 1822 at the age of 29, after drowning in a boating accident in the Gulf of Spezia, Italy. His legacy continues to inspire poets and thinkers to this day.
