In George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” which author is Orwell referring to as “seventeenth-century Shelley”.

My best guess is Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) author of Frankenstein. Does that seem reasonable?

Thank you.

    Since Shelley lived in the 19th century, Orwell is referring to someone who lived in the 1600s.
