Shelley.  On 8 July 1822, against the advice of the local inhabitants, Shelley set out in his small boat for a sail.  The expected storm blew up, the boat foundered, and Shelley, who could not swim, was never seen alive again.  Eight days later his body was washed up on the beach - he was identified by a book of poetry in his pocket.  Original artwork for illustration on p23 of Look and Learn issue no 951 (12 April 1980).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
