There are no uncontested dates with which to delimit the Romantic period in poetry; therefore historically, the study of Romantic poetry has been organised around just six canonical figures -- Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, and Keats -- and structured in terms of the categories generated by their works alone.


Through a series of 34 essays by leading and emerging scholars, A Companion to Romantic Poetry reveals the rich diversity of Romantic poetry and shows why it continues to hold such a vital and indispensable place in the history of English literature.
* Breaking free from the boundaries of the traditionally-studied authors, the collection takes a revitalized approach to the field and brings together some of the most exciting work being done at the present time
* Emphasizes poetic form and technique rather than a biographical approach
* Features essays on production and distribution and the different schools and movements of Romantic Poetry
* Introduces contemporary contexts and perspectives, as well as the issues and debates that continue to drive scholarship in the field
* Presents the most comprehensive and compelling collection of essays on British Romantic poetry currently available
