Publisher's Summary

Strictly speaking The Lake Poets were not a movement or school of poetry. They were only so named as such by The Edinburgh Review so that they could be disparaged.

It was a spectacular backfire!

The three main figures would be rightly seen as among the most monumental figures in English poetry - William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the underrated but immense Robert Southey, himself a 30-year poet laureate.

The profound majesty of the Lake District, an area of almost unequalled beauty, of mythical landscapes and beguiling charm, influenced and acted as muse to their burgeoning talents.

Their creations have ennobled this poetry as an art form that is intense, lyrical, moving and above all deliciously satisfying.

This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialised imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.
