A sublime exploration of the genesis of the Romantic movement, Nicholson’s book focuses on the period between June 1797 and Autumn 1798; a time when Coleridge and Wordsworth penned some of the most lauded verse in English poetry. An eloquent interrogation of literary genius and the importance of place to the creative process, The Making of Poetry is an illuminating – and stunningly illustrated - account of poetry’s Annus Mirabilis.
