Following the American and French revolutions of 1776 and 1789, there was an upsurge in romanticism, which was a celebration of the human spirit and its ability for love as well as a fresh flowering of the imagination and the spirit. This unique anthology juxtaposes poetry by lesser-known authors and female poets like Charlotte Smith and Mary Robinson with the widely acknowledged genius of works like Blake's "Tyger," Coleridge's "Khubla Khan," and Shelley's "Ozymandias." We also witness well-known poets in novel ways as Coleridge, Keats, and Clare explore the Gothic and bizarre, while Blake, Wordsworth, and Shelley show off their comic prowess.
