A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for the best-known English Romantic poets, including William Blake, Robert Burns, William Wordsworth, Sir Walter Scott, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Shelley and John Keats. As defenders of imagination and spirituality, these celebrated poets are recognized for their collective protest against the principles of the English Neoclassical period.

As a collection from the English Romantic era, these works reflect the subjectivity, emotionalism, and lawlessness that defined the spirit of Romanticism. Together, these works capture the values of one of the largest and most influential artistic movements in history. This Bright Notes Study Guide includes notes and commentary on literary classics such as Blake's Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience, Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey," Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," Byron's "Don Juan," and Keats' "Ode to a Grecian Urn," helping students to thoroughly explore the reasons they have stood the literary test of time. Each Bright Notes Study Guide contains:

- Introductions to the Author and the Work
- Character Summaries
- Plot Guides
- Section and Chapter Overviews
- Test Essay and Study Q&As

The Bright Notes Study Guide series offers an in-depth tour of more than 275 classic works of literature, exploring characters, critical commentary, historical background, plots, and themes. This set of study guides encourages readers to dig deeper in their understanding by including essay questions and answers as well as topics for further research.
