A debated term, 'Romanticism' is broadly taken to encompass a European cultural movement of personal and political rebellion which embodied a poetics of feeling and imagination intersecting with nature and the sublime. Michael Ferber's lively anthology of key Romantic poems ranges from Charlotte Smith in the 1790s to William Butler Yeats in the 1880s, uncovering some less well-known poems from the best-known poets, as well as a few fine poems by little-known poets. Ideal for readers who would like to discover the riches of perhaps the greatest era of poetry, or those who know the poets but would welcome some happy surprises, this varied and international selection includes poems translated from six languages, with several poems appearing in the original language alongside its translation. This engaging book also features concise, informative headnotes and a compelling introduction that charts a course to understanding the Romantic movement as a whole.
