Really?

Lol, no. Interesting though.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

No, in fact, I didn't even know they had a name for vegans back then.

Valerie-Jael said...

No I didn't. I wasn't fond of his poetry, either! Have a great day, Valerie

Elephant's Child said...

I did (I think). It was undoubtedly just one more reason that he was considered to be crazy by many.

The bird looks relieved.

No doubt.

Jeanie said...

No, I didn't!

Birgit said...

I didn’t know that and had no idea that existed back then.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. He does, doesn't he?

CJ Kennedy said...

Nope. Like another commentor said, I didn't know the word was used then.

Interesting

Lee said...

Golly gee! I'm so dumb! I didn't know that, either!

Sandra said...

Tomato. Tomato:) I don't think the word itself was used but he followed the precepts of what we call vegans today.

Sandra said...

PS Perhaps I should have worded that differently. He followed the precepts of veganism.

Sandra said...

There ya go:)

Sandra said...

Glad you found it interesting, Christine.

Sandra said...

Dumb is definitely NOT an adjective that applies to you.

This was one thing I did not know about Percy Shelley.
Did you know that his Heart is buried locally to me alongside his wife Mary and son Percy junior. His son had a Manor not far from where I live which is now a doctor's surgery.
