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

Nearly all the famous piéces de résistance will be found here—"Intimations of Immortality," "The Ancient Mariner," "The Tyger," excerpts from Don Juan—s well as some less familiar poems. As muchas 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.

 Every classic and unforgettable piece of romantic poetry is here in this definitive anthology that includes the works of such luminaries as Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelly, Clare and Keats. English Romantic Verse follows the popular form of poetry from its budding through to its flowering; “The Ancient Mariner,” “The Tyger,” excerpts from “Don Juan” and less familiar but equally important poems make up the romantic canon, as do the later works of Beddoes and Poe.
