    English Romantic Poets

    No generation of poets has felt more powerfully and enduringly than the Romantics of the late 18th and early 19th 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.

  • German romantic poets

    £12.00

    German romantic poets

    German Romantic poetry is both fluid and formed, and it is full of song: the poems themselves are often intrinsically lyrical, and many of them inspired some of the best-known musical compositions of the nineteenth century. In this collection, we see German Romantic poets confronting life’s greatest moments and greatest challenges – love, loss, death – and producing beautiful, and sometimes witty, works in response. Admiration for nature, in for particular the dramatic forests which still cover large areas of Germany, is also prominent in their work. Characters from myth and folklore abound too, most famously Lorelei, an enchantress who is associated with the River Rhine, and who features in several poems in this volume.
