Product Description

About the Author

Coleridge and Wordsworth inaugurated the Romantic movement with this volume of poems. As different as they were, they both later proved to be important poets, critics, and philosophers, and their work permanently changed poetry in English. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Edition 12 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book of Lyrical Ballads is based on the first edition of 1798. Two years later it was re-released with a couple of pieces from here removed, and other pieces added. Although there is no active table of contents shown in the 'Go To' menu, if you go past the introduction/ advertisement you will find that there is one, so you can click on any poem, also there are active footnotes as well.

There isn't really enough space on here to try to tell why this book is a landmark book as such. This collaboration between Coleridge and Wordsworth (most of the pieces are by the latter) was received with mixed reactions by the leading critics of the day, but was a success with the public. With its descriptions of common people and scenery this was something new and exciting at the time, and not only did it have a profound effect on future poetry in this country, but it also sent ripples out into the novel form thus changing and influencing what and how novels changed into a much more modern form.

I was happy to see this in the Kindle Popular Classics store, as it is one of those books that I love to come back to from time to time, especially when I have some peace and quiet and time to relax.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 4 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The text within the book only fills half of the page, making it very small and difficult to read. This was not stated anywhere online. It was packaged awfully in some sticky grey plastic bag, which was very difficult to remove and completely stuck to the book. If I didn't need it for university, I would be sending it back immediately.
