5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Selection, 19 Sep 2010
This review is from: English Romantic Verse (Poets) (Paperback)
David Wright here gives us a great little selection of romantic verse as well as an introduction on romanticism, what it means and its central ideas and ideals, as well as its historic context. As well as the great romantic poets which need no mentioning we are here provided with others that have not favoured so well, as well as being given poets and poems which can be seen as the precusor to romantic verse, as well as some others who can be seen as the transistion away from romanticism. Although did romanticism ever really leave us?

With something like 36 poets there are a great number of poems here, and the most famous are more or less here. Because of space requirements of course you don't get Wordsworth's The Prelude, only a couple of fragments, and some poems have been left out due to the length of them, with less famous works taking their place.

All in all this is a great book for those into romantic verse, and there are plenty of footnotes. Even if you are not into romanticism this may help change your mind, so it would be a good present for someone into poetry.
