This session focuses on students becoming familiar with some of the major writers , themes, and history of the Romantic period: who were the Romantic poets, what inspired them, how did they respond to the world around them? We will then explore the ‘Romantic’ nature of a Wordsworth poem. We can extend this session by looking in more detail at one or more Romantic poems, addressing questions such as: what makes the poem Romantic, how this is revealed in language and imagery, how we approach a text written more than two-hundred years ago and how the poem/s might link thematically with each other, or with more contemporary poems.
