A range of writers, both canonical and non-canonical, are included in his survey, including:William BlakeWilliam WordsworthSamuel Taylor ColeridgeJohn KeatsShelleyEdmund BlakeThomas PaineMary WollstonecraftJane AustenCharlotte SmithAnna Laetitia Barbauld
Romanticism takes a clear, wide-ranging view of the subject and is essential reading for students new to the subject.
