schema:reviewBody""The relationship between the various Romantic manifestos and the major poetry of the time is here examined by one of our leading critics of Romanticism. In spite of the apparent confidence associated with so many of these writers, Mark Storey argues that there is an underlying unease about the validity of poetry, perhaps best represented by Wordsworth's lines: 'We Poets in our youth begin in gladness;/ But thereof comes in the end despondency and madness'. The question, 'What is a poet?' is frequently asked, and many of the answers are involved with issues of identity, which in turn are reflected in the poetry. The doubts about individual abilities are matched by doubts as to what poetry can actually achieve: eventually there is even a sense that poetry can be destructive, and that the poet is best either silent or dead. Separate chapters are devoted to Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats and Shelley, John Clare, Byron, and George Darley, all of whom confront themselves in their work."--BOOK JACKET."
