Overview

The poetry of Walter Savage Landor spans the final years of the Enlightenment to the greatest achievements of the Victorian Empire. Landor is now regarded as a ‘poet’s poet’, whose sensitive and beautiful poetry won the admiration of Browning, Yeats, Ezra Pound and Robert Frost. His celebrated love poems were inspired by a succession of female romantic ideals – Ione, Ianthe, Rose Aylmer and Rose Paynter — while his "domestic" poems concerning his sister and children reveal equal finesse. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature's finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Landor’s collected poetical works, with beautiful illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
