Romantics

Overview

“To see a world in a grain of sand…”
William Blake

The Romantic poets wrote about much more than daffodils… Writing against a backdrop of anarchy and rebellion in 19th century Europe, the Romantic poets passionately wanted their poetry to inspire and change the world around them. Their works emphasise the importance of the individual, a reverence for childhood and the natural world, and calls to end both poetic elitism and the exploitation of the poor.

Poets performed include John Keats, Anna Barbauld, William Wordsworth, Felicia Dorothea Hemans, Percy Bysshe Shelley, George Gordon Lord Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Blake, Charlotte Smith and Hannah More.
