Romanticism: A Short Introduction

Mostly for my Higher class, here’s a downloadable overview of the Romantic movement.

The Romantic poets wrte from the 1770s to the 1830s (roughly) and the six most famous Romantic poets were Blake, Byron, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley and Wordsworth. There are MANY other writers for you to investigate if you have time.

Increasingly, John Clare is being added to this Big Six, and female writers such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Mary Robinson are now getting some of the attention they have long been denied.

I hope the talk is of some use.
