Product description

In August 1817 the Edinburgh Review used the term "Lake Poets" to describe the work of William Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southey.

The term was used in a derisory context. Almost two centuries later, the term is used in anything but a derogatory fashion.

We now see the work of the Lake Poets, in particular that of Wordsworth and Coleridge, and specifically that written in the legendary period between 1797 and 1807, as defining the nature of modern poetry.

This poetic revolution is a fascinating story. Certainly the location couldn't be bettered: the most outstanding beautiful and atmospheric landscape in the British Isles - The Lake District.
