Poetic Friends

A Study of Literary Relations During the English Romantic Period

This book attempts to answer this question by studying the literary relations of seven poets, comprising five «pairs» of the English Romantic Period: Blake and Hayley; Coleridge and Wordsworth; Shelley, Byron, and Keats.
Contents: This is the first study of the poetic transformation of literary friendships involving key English Romantic poets: Blake, Hayley, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron, and Keats.
