    One thought on “The Norton Anthology Of English Literature, Vol. D, Romantic Period”

    1. My project to read The Norton from The Romantic Period to the Present wrapped up today. This work began when I TA-ed for my friend Matt's British Lit class in the Fall and it ended up taking all school year (OU graduates on Saturday).Although I didn't enjoy the Romantic Anthology as much as the Modern and the Victorian, this is (obviously?) so full of greatness. I went in thinking I liked the big four poets in this order: Keats, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley. Now, I'd probably say: Wordsworth, [...]

    2. Uni book.Technically I am still using it this semester, but I've finished all of my required reading in it so I'm putting it on my 'read' shelf. It is an incredible anthology (no surprise there) and it holds a wide variety of writers from the Romantic Period. Norton focus on some of the lesser known writers, not just the big six, which gives a wider knowledge of the era.

    3. Read:From Introduction: -Sonnets from Elegiac Sonnets - Charlotte SmithThe Ecchoing Green - William BlakeLondon - William Blake

    4. I'm glad I went through the whole thing; though I wasn't often inspired by the contextual matter, it was definitely useful to contextualize my fields selections among other widely-read works by the same authors, and among other authors. I discovered a lot of works I like much better than the ones I actually read -- including Beachy Head, which I shouldn't have avoided so firmly! I'd like to read the Longman now

    5. Covers most of the major authors from the Romantic period, prose and poetry. I think the excerpts were excellent choices and the short author bios before each section were very informative. My favorite was "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Coleridge. This book is a great reference for anyone taking a British Lit course, but also fun to look through on your own.

    6. This anthology collection has many of the classic British writers such as William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, and Percy Bysshe Shelley. I like how this collection also gives information on the time periods and author biographies.

    7. The book is well thought out, as you would expect from a Norton Anthology. I just really do not like the romantics outside of the occasional Keats or Austen (if you categorize her as Romantic, which I don't).

    8. Read: Smith, “Written in the Church-Yard at Middleton,” “On Being Cautioned against Walking on an Headland,” “The Sea View”; Burns, “A Red, Red Rose,” “For a’ that,” “Green Grow the Rashes." Blake, “Introduction,” “The Lamb,” “The Little Black Boy,” “The Chimney Sweeper,” “Holy Thursday” from Songs of Innocence. Blake, “Introduction,” “The Tyger,” “The Chimney Sweeper,” “London,” “The Garden of Love” from Songs of Experience. Equian [...]

    11. I think I read most of this book for my Engl Lit class and I felt like I had a pretty good (if not general) overview of some of the writers at that time. It was interesting to see what was going on in their era, what they felt, and why they needed to write. Some of the poetry in this book was just gorgeous. As I said for the other volume though, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't consider this a pleasure read. I'd recommend for class.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2010

    12. I like this series of textbooks. Each section has a clear, concise introduction to different aspects of that theme. It provides brief, informative biographies on each author. It includes a wide variety of authors and poets to choose from. There is no way you could cover everything in this book in one semester. It has wonderful footnotes to help clarify archaic words and phrases as well. All this is presented without any kind of opinion or critique, leaving the passages open for debate or persona [...]

    13. This book has been kicking my butt all semester. I don't love poetry or romanticism and trying to memorize lines for tests when one poem sounded like every other poem proved to be a beast. But I liked the author bios. They helped me to be more invested in the poems and to try to make sense of them by seeing the author's lives and experiences in their poetry. But still, I would like to be returned to a literary world filled with realism and prose now.

    14. I'm not really much into poetry, and there is a LOT of poetry. I understand that novels can't really be put into anthologies like this, but I thought the sections on Austen and Dickens were pathetic. Not even excerpts, like they did with Radcliffe, Scott, and M. Shelley (although the excerpt of tha latter was NOT from Frankenstein!).

    15. Being a text book for school, I will admit that I haven't read the entire book, only the class requirements. It is heavily poetry, with some exerpts from novels. Covering the Romantic Period, we studied great poets such as Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth,Coleridge, and Lord Byron. It is a great collection of some of the best from this period.

    16. Dog-eared, highlighted, and trashed, I'm never giving this book up EVER! Wish it had been bigger--would have loved more of the later Romantics and more about the lives of the six greatest poets of this era. Otherwise really fantastic. Perfect if you're a Lit major with an area of focus in this subject.

    17. As with all my other Norton Anthology reviews, I love the Nortons. They're fantastic for providing a good range of materials with strong critical introductions, a good set of historical contexts and cultural information and so on.

    18. A nice compilation of old-school Brit Lit, nearly all of which was the first time I'd come across it. Very poetic material, classics, all the way around. Taught at Alma by a teacher who ruined all the beauty. :(

    19. Only had to read select poems from Shelley, Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats and Lord Byron, but I actually really enjoyed some of them??? I think my favourite would still have to be The Cloud by Shelley, because I chose it for my recital assessment and now it's like stuck with me for life

    20. Read first half for Early Romantic Literature class: Blake, Burns, Wordsworth, Coleridge, etc. The Norton Anthologies are always good.
