Item description for The Lakeland Poets: In the Footsteps of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey and Others by Andrew Pagett...
Sandwiched between England and Scotland, the Lakes have acted as muse to many a writer, their unique beauty and serenity calling to the souls of poets. In this fully illustrated anthology we discover the landscapes which inspired the Lakeland Poets - William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey among others. The Lakeland Poets also touches on the work of several poets not usually associated with the Lakes but whose work was influenced by visits to the region. John Keats traveled through on his way to Scotland in 1818 and incorporated his impressions of the majestic landscape into Hyperion. John Ruskin was taken to the Lakes as a child and was inspired to write his earliest published verse, and Matthew Arnold composed some of his best-known verse after a pilgrimage to Wordsworth's grave. This timeless anthology is enhanced throughout by the beautiful and sensitive work of the artist Alfred Heaton Cooper (1814-1929).
