The Tyger... I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud...Ode to the West Wind...The Rime of the Ancient Mariner...Ode to a Nightingale...We'll go no more a-roving...The Peasant Poet

'All good poetry,' wrote Wordsworth, 'is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings' and this was to be one of the hallmarks of the Romantic poets.

With a dynamic spirit, these great English poets made a conscious return to nostalgia and spiritual depth. Each chose a different path, but they are united in a love of moods, impressions, scenes, stories, sights and sounds. In this collection of more than forty poems are some of the finest and most memorable works in the English language.

About the Author
Author William Blake

William Blake (1757–1827) was an English poet, artist, and printmaker. Although largely unrecognized during his lifetime, he is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. He is held in high regard by critics for his expressiveness and creativity and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work. He produced a diverse and symbolically rich body of works that embraced the imagination as “the body of God” or “human existence itself.” Reverent of the Bible but hostile to the Church of England, he was influenced by the ideals and ambitions of the French and American revolutions, as well as by such thinkers as Emanuel Swedenborg.
