This book remains, according to my prof, the most comprehensive single source for the relevant primary Romantic poetry texts.

I can't count how many times I've lost myself between the pages of this book. I "borrowed" it from my father, a PhD student of English Lit-focusing on the Romantics, when I was very young. I never gave it back.
