6 The Romantic Age – (1785-1830) Norton D (xix-xxviii, 3-32)
“Shortest, but most complex and diverse as any other period in British Literature” (1) Literary scholars listed in the Romantic period throughout most of the 20th Century__ Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Percy Shelly, and Keats (most noted for political, social and economic literary work(s)). Later others were identified Keats, and many women who defied social mores to publish or opted to write under pseudonyms.

Read Charlotte Smith (53) Poem – “Written at the Close of Spring” (54) Poem – “To Night” (55) Annotate poems on a separate sheet of paper or use a TPCASTT

8 Anna Letitia Barbauld, “The Rights of Woman”
Until the last two stanzas, this seems to be a positive response to Mary Wollstonecraft's "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman"(1792), which was a radical look at the place of women in society. “Conquest or rule thy heart shall feebly move, In Nature's school, by her soft maxims taught, That separate rights are lost in mutual love.”

9 Charlotte Smith - Significant figure during Romantic Period, used of blank verse to convey a tone and emotion “To a Nightingale” Poor melancholy bird---that all night long Tell'st to the Moon, thy tale of tender woe; From what sad cause can such sweet sorrow flow, And whence this mournful melody of song? Thy poet's musing fancy would translate What mean the sounds that swell thy little breast, When still at dewy eve thou leav'st thy nest, Thus to the listening night to sing thy fate! Pale Sorrow's victims wert thou once among, Tho' now releas'd in woodlands wild to rove? Say---hast thou felt from friends some cruel wrong, Or diedst thou---martyr of disastrous love? Ah! songstress sad! that such my lot might be, To sigh and sing at liberty---like thee! (Poem)

On Turning Her up in Her Nest with the Plough, November, 1785 Apologies Sorrow Concern Harsh work and lives Destruction Couplets

11 Lord Byron (612-6) “She Walks in Beauty”
 I She walks in beauty—like the night   Of cloudless climes and starry skies, And all that's best of dark and bright   Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to the tender light   Which heaven to gaudy day denies.      II One shade the more, one ray the less,   Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress   Or softly lightens o'er her face— Where thoughts serenely sweet express   How pure, how dear their dwelling place.      III And on that cheek and o'er that brow   So soft, so calm yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow   But tell of days in goodness spent A mind at peace with all below,   A heart whose love is innocent.

12 William Blake (112-6) “All Religions are One, The Voice of One crying in the Wilderness” (76) text against 18th Century Deism or “natural religion” Principle 1 “That the Poetic Genius is the true Man, and that the body or outward form of Man is derived from the Poetic Genius….by which the Ancients was call’d an Angel & Spirit & Demon…” Principle 7 “As all men are alike (tho’ infinitely various), so all Religions & as all similars have one source.
