- Not available
This beautifully illustrated new book looks at how the English Romantic poets drew on the British landscape as an inspiration for their life and work and how, in turn, Romantic literature altered our perception of, and appreciation for, that landscape. The book will focus on five poets: William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats and John Clare. It will also draw upon the work of their literary contemporaries, including Lord Byron, William Hazlitt, Charles Lamb, Jane Austen, Thomas de Quincey and Walter Scott. Contemporary guide books, maps and engravings will be considered, and illustrations will include works by the great English landscape artists of the period, such as J.M.W. Turner, John Constable, Thomas Girtin, John Sell Cotman and Samuel Palmer.
