The Tyger... I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud... Ode to the West Wind... The Rime of the Ancient Mariner... Ode to a Nightingale... We'll go no more a-roving... The Peasant Poet 'All good poetry,' wrote Wordsworth, 'is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings' and this was to be one of the hallmarks of the Romantic poets. With a dynamic spirit, these great English poets made a conscious return to nostalgia and spiritual depth. Each chose a different path, but they are united in a love of moods, impressions, scenes, stories, sights and sounds. In this collection of more than forty poems are some of the finest and most memorable works in the English language.
