Penguin, 2003 - 1005 strani
In the years following the American and French Revolutions, the Romantic Movement’s exaltation of nature and the imagination produced poetry of surpassing beauty and importance. From Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan” to Byron’s “She walks in beauty, like the night,” this outstanding anthology gathers the work of fifty-one poets from the period. Arranged by theme and genre, the book enables us to see the Romantics—both famous and lesser-known—in a fresh light, revealing unexpected connections and shared concerns. Including a strong representation of women poets such as Charlotte Smith and Mary Robinson, this definitive collection captures the period’s matchless creative flowering in all its glory.
