ENGLISH ROMANTIC WRITERS offers selections from authors who have traditionally held a large place in our consciousness of English Romanticism, but it also includes other figures--especially women--who have been less emphasized in the past. The intellectual discourses of the age concerning governance, politics, the impact of the French Revolution, gender and the status of women, the nature of nature and of human psychology, and the theory of literature and art are represented in the prose and poetry of writers like Wordsworth, Coleridge, the Shelleys, and Keats.
