Lakeland Poets is an absorbing and charming account of the lives and works of Hartley Coleridge, Samuel Coleridge, Thomas de Quincey, Robert Southey, Dorothy Wordsworth and William Wordsworth. Membership of the ‘school’ of Lake Poets has been extended to include Wordsworth’s sister, Dorothy, Coleridge’s son, Hartley, and Thomas de Quincey. This is a valuable opportunity for readers to discover more about writers whose work has been sorely neglected and is often difficult to find in print.
In this comprehensive and accessible volume each poet’s life is detailed and then a selection of their work is presented. The book then goes on to offer details about places associated with that poet, the villages, the stunning scenery of locations which often inspired their work, their homes, where they eventually ended their days and where they now rest.
This delightful and beautifully illustrated book is sure to enchant both established lovers of poetry as well as newcomers to the art.
