So far Krazymom is the closest, but it isn't George Jetson...

He was born in Camberwell, a suburb of London. As a youngster he spent much of his time in his father's private library of 6000 volumes in several languages. The chief source of his education

He became an admiror of another poet's poetry in 1844. He began corresponding with her by letter. This was the start of one of the world's most famous romances. Their courtship lasted until 1846 when they were married. The couple moved to Italy that same year and had a son later in 1849.

He did not become recognized as a poet until after his wife's death in 1861. After which, he was honored for the rest of his life as a literary figure.

You got it. Two of my favorite poets. I figured it was a fairly easy one.

I was the youngest of my 8 siblings, and my father was 75 when I was born. As a young lad, I was well-read and an avid sportsman. I worked briefly in the post office, and did a lot of writing. I am best known for my love of my country, my work in politics, my undeserved stay in prison, and my assassination at the tender age of 32. Who am I?
