Inhaltsangabe: The poets whom we call the Romantics - Wordsworth, Coleridge, Burns and Blake, Byron, Shelley, and Keats - belonged to an age that saw many other kinds of poetry written and published. In this new anthology, Jerome McGann explores the full range of verse that was published in Britain between the years 1785 and 1832. Selections from all the major and minor Romantic poets are included, as well as important political and satiric verse of the period, the continuing tradition of `sentimental' verse, regional and dialect verse, and verse in translation. Organizing his material by date of first appearance, and not by author grouping, Professor McGann calls attention to the historical and cultural contexts in which the poetry is embedded. Old familiar poems are thrown into new relationships, and traditional views of the poetry of the period challenged. An important feature of this anthology is the space it devotes to women poets. Felica Dorothea Hemans was one of the most widely published and read poets of the nineteenth century, and here she takes her rightful place together with Ann Yearsley, Laeticia Borbauld, Mary Tighe, Lady Morgan, Laeticia Elizabeth Landon, and other distinguished female writers. In his introduction the editor discusses the concept of romantic writing, and the true diversity it contains. The manifesto of the romantic movement, Wordsworth's Preface to the Lyrical Ballads , is here printed in an appendix. This book is intended for lovers of English Romantic Verse; students of Romantic literature, undergraduate level and up.
