This new edition of the groundbreaking "Romanticism: An Anthology" is the only book of its kind to contain complete texts of a wide range of Romantic works, including Blake's "Songs of Innocence and of Experience", "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, and Urizen"; Wordsworth and Coleridge's "Lyrical Ballads" (1798); Wordsworth's "Two-Part Prelude"; early and revised versions of Coleridge's "The Eolian Harp", "This Lime-Tree Bower my Prison", "Frost at Midnight", and "The Ancient Mariner"; Shelley's "Prometheus Unbound", "Epipsychidion" and "Adonais"; Byron's Childe Harold's "Pilgrimage Canto III and Don Juan Dedication and Cantos I and II"; and Keats' Odes, "The Two Hyperions", "Lamia", "Isabella" and "The Eve of St Agnes". It also carries explanatory annotations and author headnotes. Updated to incorporate the latest scholarly findings, it remains the essential text on Romanticism. It includes all texts from the third edition, with the addition of Keats' "Isabella" and Shelley's "Epipsychidion", as well as a selection of the poems of Walter Scott. It includes a wider and deeper selection of texts by the Big Six male poets (Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Byron and Shelley) than any competing volume. It includes a generous range of texts by female Romantic poets. All editorial materials, including annotations, author headnotes, and prefatory materials, have been revised for the new edition. This is the only book to contain complete texts, edited for this volume from manuscript and early printed sources by Wu, along with explanatory annotations and author headnotes. It contains everything teachers and students require for an in-depth survey of the principal writings to emerge from the British Romantic period. This is the most widely-used teaching anthology in the field in the UK. The companion website features a dynamic timeline detailing significant events of the romantic period and providing images, suggestions for further reading and useful links to other online resources.
