In an engaging discussion that will appeal to all students of poetry, including veteran scholars, this book shows which poems most occupied the attention of these moderns, summarizes their attitudes toward historical romanticism, explores what use they made of aesthetic and ethical ideas from the critical prose of 1800-1825, and takes notice of when, where, and precisely how they adapted images and echoed phrases from romantic poetry for use in their own work.
