A hugely welcome addition to Penguin's poetry list, THE NEW PENGUIN BOOK OF ROMANTIC VERSE celebrates the imaginative power of an extraordinary period. Organised by theme, and to some extent by genre, this landmark anthology gives readers a sense both of the period as it unfolds and of the power and versatility of individual poets. A fascinating introduction places the period in its historical context, calls attention to previously neglected areas of the period's output and clears away many of the hackneyed cliches about Romanticism.

Jonathan Wordsworth is widely regarded as being one of the most eminent figures on the Romantics. Formerly Professor of English at St Catherine's College, Oxford, he has written and lectured widely on the period. He is the son of Wordsworth's brother.
