‘All good poetry is the spontaneous poetry of powerful feelings’ -William WordsworthNo generation of poets has felt more powerfully and enduringly than the Romantics of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. In this indispensable volume, Sir Jonathan Bate – prizewinning biographer of Wordsworth, Keats and John Clare – brings together the most loved poems of the age, together with many forgotten gems. Alongside classics such as Coleridge’s ‘Kubla Khan’ and ‘Frost at Midnight’, the odes of Keats and generous selections from Wordsworth’s Lyrical Ballads and The Prelude, the reader will discover the wit of Byron, the wildness of Blake, the passion of Shelley, a wealth of nature poems by Clare, and the distinctive voices of women Romantics such as Charlotte Smith, Mary Robinson, Felicia Hemans, Dorothy Wordsworth and Letitia Landon.]]>
