Reading Romantic Poetry introduces the major themes and preoccupations, and the key poems and players of a period convulsed by revolution, prolonged warfare and political crisis. It provides a clear, lively introduction to Romantic Poetry, backed by academic research and marked by its accessibility to students with little prior experience of poetry. It introduces many of the major topics of the age, from politics to publishing, from slavery to sociability, from Milton to the mind of man, and encourages direct responses to poems by opening up different aspects of the literature and fresh approaches to reading. This book deepens understanding of poems through awareness of their literary, historical, political and personal contexts.
