The aim of this anthology is to provide the student with an overview of the nature of English Romantic poetry. The introduction
devotes particular attention to the social problems of the 18th and 19th
centuries, since these exercised such an important influence on the
intellectual and artistic development of each of the poets concerned.
The central core of the book is divided into six sections, one for each of the
following poets: Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats. These poets are universally regarded
as the most important and influential figures of English Romanticism and the selections here
anthologized represent their quintessential poetic uniqueness. In some
cases, significant parts of longer works have also been included in order to give the student a broader idea of the
poet's artistic vision.
Each section is followed by a series of exercises aimed at stimulating the students' understanding and
appreciation of the linguistic and prosodical aspects of the poems as well as their thematic
In order to facilitate apprehension and enhance enjoyment of the poems, this
anthology also includes a CD with selected readings. These readings are also designed to complement the
exercises on "Rhythm" and "Sound".
This book is the result of a collaboration between Adriana D'Angelo and Renzo
D'Agnillo during the 1997-98 academic year at the Language Centre of the"G. d'Annunzio" University. The project was
supervised and coordinated by Prof. Francesco Marroni to whom the authors
would like to express their deep gratitude.
