    One thought on “Romanticism: An Anthology with CD-ROM”

    1. I ve been diligently working my way through this massive tome of writing since the start of September And it has been so much fun One day I hope to lecture on the Romantics at a university It would be glorious, me spieling out my thoughts on the poetry and prose of my favourite literary era I don t think I d ever consider it work.The Romantic writers were such an optimistic bunch they really wanted to change the world They directly addressed the constructs of society along with arguing for new c [...]

    2. This book is on my reading list for one of my modules Monstrous Bodies, which looks at the depiction of monsters and medical discourse in 19th century literature , so this review is slightly less personal than many of my others.Truth be told, I am not a fan of 19th century poetry I find it to be overtly descriptive with not enough substance However, the poetry in this anthology has enabled me to change my mind, especially on Wordsworth s works I have particularly come to enjoy The Thorn , as it [...]

    3. This is actually a uni textbook but it s still good reading anyway Pictures, biographies, notes, this book has it all There are two major problems though firstly, this book is MASSIVE and secondly, although you get pretty much every Romantic poet in existance, you don t get all their works nor full pieces of poetry.

    4. I didn t learn very much from this book at all It was too big It hit me like a punch, and left me reeling A useful rescource, but over stuffed And the biographies only tell one what one could have found out for oneself A student s book, basically Useful, but uninspire ing.

    5. I didn t read all of it I m not sure I ever will at one time But I liked most of what we read in for class

    6. obviously i only read a selection, not the entire thing, for university Coleridge, Barbauld, Wordsworth, Blake, Byron, Shelley, Smith, Keats, Austen and Clare.

    7. Loving Wordsworth but what a size of a book to carry back and forward to uni It has everything you need for the course and some really really long poems.
