The Romantic Poets and their Circle
DescriptionThe Romantic Poets and their Circle by Richard Holmes
The ideal of the ‘inspired’ artist owes its origin to the figures of the Romantic period, who revolutionised English art and literature. In this book, Richard Holmes explores the portraits and lives of such key poets as Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats, and assesses the impact of their work on contemporary culture and society.
Richard Holmes is best known for his biographies of key figures of British and French Romanticism. His book The Age of Wonder won the Royal Society Science Book Prize for 2009.
