The Romantic Poets



Books by or about the Romantic Poets, or by/about those influenced by them.

PLEASE NOTE: I've had to remove a number of books not showing any discernible connection to the group of late 18th and 19th century Romantic Poets this list is actually about (Keats, Byron, Shelley, Blake, etc.), or the 19th century poets influenced by them (e.g., Tennyson, the Brownings and the Brontës).

Please note that the term "Romantic Poets" in this list applies specifically to that particular group of poets. This is NOT simply a list for love poetry (regardless of century and author), nor for the works of self-described "romantics" (regardless of century, and whatever that term might imply in other regards).

All books added henceforth that are not within the list description given above will likewise be deleted.

Sarah I disagree that the Brontes were in the Romantic Period - they are post-1800 and therefore Victorian. Thoughts?


message 2: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Sep 24, 2011 11:06AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Victorian doesn't start at 1800. Victoria's dates are 1837-1901.

The Romantic period is generally said to have started in the 1790s, and runs strong through the 1820s. It took a while to peter out, and had much influence on the rest of the 19th century.

I have more problem with Tennyson and Robert Browning, who are both important Victorian poets, though I admit, influenced by the Romantics.

Also, what the heck is "Byron in Love"? It would seem to be about Byron, not by him, and written very recently.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) It's a list for books both by and on the Romantic Poets (Byron in Love fits the latter category), as well as those influenced by them (hence Tennyson, Browning, and the Brontës).


message 4: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Dec 25, 2011 01:00PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Ah.

Maybe add that to the list description?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Done. :)

Happy Holidays to you!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads And to you! Hope you're having a good one!


message 7: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Dec 25, 2011 01:44PM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Likewise! :)

A few days of much-needed peace and quiet hereabouts ... No snow this time around, but hey, you can't get them all -- and we still have plenty of memories of last year to look back to ...




Susanna - Censored by GoodReads We also had a white Christmas last year; very rare here (last before that was in '63). Beautiful pictures!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I wouldn't even have believed such a thing as a White Christmas could exist in your neck of the woods ... wow, that is truly stunning!

The pictures are from our backyard (centre) and our neighborhood (left and right). This year, instead of snow I'd be able to take photos of blossoming roses if I wanted to -- talk about extreme opposites!


message 10: by lisa_emily (new)

lisa_emily Thank you for keeping a tightly-run list. I was looking for a general book on the Romantics and I found some that fit my interests here.
