An okay beginner's look at English Romantic poetry, but if you're not completely invested in reading only the "Big Six" (Wordsworth, Blake, Keats, Shelley, Byron, Coleridge), skip this book for now and look at the recommendations listed in the Introduction. I can imagine most would be thinking, "240 pages with only six poets, and they're all Romantics? Kill me now." Honestly, it is tiresome. But if you're genuinely interested in poetry, it is a relatively good way to branch out of contemporary and modern work and to feel your way around recent poetic history.
