English Romantic Verse, Paperback / softback Book

English Romantic Verse Paperback / softback

Edited by David Wright

Paperback / softback

Description

English Romantic poetry from its beginnings and its flowering to the first signs of its decadence.

Nearly all the famous pieces de resistance will be found here - 'Intimations of Immortality', 'The Ancient Mariner', 'The Tyger', excerpts from 'Don Juan' - as well as some less familiar poems.

As far as possible the poets are arranged in chronological order, and their poems in order of composition, beginning with eighteenth-century precursors such as Gray, Cowper, Burns and Chatterton.

Naturally most space has been given over to the major Romantics - Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, Clare and Keats - although their successors, poets such as Beddoes and Poe, are included too, as well as early poems by Tennyson and Browning.

In an excellent introduction David Wright discusses the Romantics as a historical phenomenon, and points out their central ideals and themes.
