The full anthology comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes.
Intended for courses that focus on poetry during the Romantic period, this volume includes all the poetry selections from Volume 4 of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, along with a number of works newly edited for this volume. The Age of Romanticism: Poetry maintains the Broadview Anthology of British Literature's characteristic balance of canonical favorites and lesser-known gems, featuring a breadth of poetry from William Blake to Phyllis Wheatley, from Ebenezer Elliott to Felicia Hemans. ""Contexts"" sections provide valuable background on cultural matters such as ""The Natural and the Sublime"" and ""The Abolition of Slavery,"" while the companion website offers a wealth of additional resources and primary works. Longer works newly prepared for the bound book include Byron's Manfred and The Giaour, Keats's Hyperion, and substantial selections from Wordsworth's fourteen-book Prelude; authors newly added for this volume include Hannah Cowley, Hannah More, Ann Yearsley, Robert Southey, and Thomas Moore.

At last, an anthology that lets us explore in detail the remarkable depth and breadth of British poetry during the long Romantic period, and to do so from a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective that embraces the range of social, political, economic, scientific and cultural developments of that protean era, including issues of gender, race, class and religion. The ample and judicious selections splendidly illustrate the rich diversity of Romantic poetry in all its forms, while the abundant contextual materials -including the lavish illustrations - situate that poetry within its contemporary intellectual, historical, artistic and cultural contexts. Concise editorial annotations deftly and unobtrusively guide readers through complex or unfamiliar territory and profitably supplement the excellent introductory and supplementary essays. Here is an anthology for all seasons of Romanticism studies, and for students at all levels.- Stephen C. Behrendt; University of Nebraska
