Robert Worley (letters August 17) invites suggestions as to what form a memorial to our local poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, should take.
Another poet (Horace, 65-8 BC) described his own poetry as ‘a monument more lasting than brass...’.
This suggests we should focus on and celebrate Shelley’s works themselves.
In Oslo’s main street (Karl Johans Gata) a series of quotes from the writings of Henrik Ibsen has been engraved on the pavements, to honour Norway’s famous dramatist.
I would suggest that Shelley may be similarly commemorated by a trail of excerpts from his poetry on the pavements (or perhaps walls) of the the streets of central Horsham.
