5.0 von 5 Sternen sehr gut 19. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Der Band "English Romantic Poetry. An Anthropology" wurde von Stanley Appelbaum herausgegeben, welcher auch eine kurze Einführung dazu verfasst hat. Anschließend werden auf ein paar wenigen Seiten die sechs Dichter kurz vorgestellt, von deren Werken wir hier eine gute Auswahl erhalten. Es handelt sich um William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Shelley und John Keats, Romantiker, die um 1800 lebten. Von jedem finden wir die wichtigsten, bekanntesten Werke, wie zum Beispiel "Tyger tyger burning bright...", Auguries of Innocence und die Proverbs of Hell von William Blake. Von Shelley finden wir unter anderem Adonais, Ode to the West Wind und To a Skylark oder "She walks in beauty" von Lord Byron. (Dies ist eine an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

3.0 von 5 Sternen A pretty good anthology 31. Juli 2002
Von Dale A. Favier - Veröffentlicht auf
The price is certainly right. I used this book to teach a high-school poetry class. The selection of Blake is the weakest part of it: the selections from Innocence and Experience aren't ample enough to give a real sense for the book, and exclude some lyrics that I just couldn't do without (e.g. the "Holy Thursday" of Experience). The complete lack of notes (which originally I thought of as a plus :->) led to some unnecessary pain for students -- I remember one attempted close-reading of "The Extinction of the Venetian Republic" which toiled slowly through the poem, dealing with mysteries that wouldn't have been mysterious at all if there had been even a brief note on the political context of the poem.
On the plus side, there is not a bad poem in the whole book: every rift is loaded with ore. And it's an attractive paperback, nicely typeset, comfortable in the hands: it doesn't feel like a cheapo-cheapo book, which you'd rather expect from the price.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Poetry Collection for the Price 24. Juni 2004
Von David Bennett - Veröffentlicht auf
Dover Thrift Edition books are known for providing classical literature for a great price, without abridging the material (unless they say so of course). This anthology is no exception. The best poets of the English Romantic period are included, including two of my favorites, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. Blake, Byron, Shelley, and Keats are also represented quite liberally.
Don't expect too much of this anthology outside of the actual poems themselves though. It is a Thrift Edition after all. The paper is strong, but not of the highest quality. There are brief introductions to each of the poets, but no real commentary or notes on the poems themselves. The editor does translate some of the ancient languages that the poets occasionally employ, like Latin and Greek. At the end there is an index of first-lines and titles. Also, I have to say, that these are not "romantic" as modern readers often use the term. "Romantic" refers to an era of art, music, philosophy, and literature where artists and writers allowed their emotions to overflow using a whole host of symbols, creating great works that owed more to the depths of the Imagination than the rational intellect. Coleridge was himself a theologian and philosopher and expressed many of his ideas of Imagination and eternal Symbol in his poems. Overall, this is a good sampling of some of the finest poetry available. Factoring in price and quantity, it is definitely 4 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The poetry itself 10. Oktober 2006
Von Shalom Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf
I think most readers know what they are going to get with a 'Dover edition or reprint'. An attractive, spartan looking volume( It has changed in recent years and their volumes are more colorful) without extensive commentary or note. The works themselves.

In this case it is a collection of the poetry of the great Romantics, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley, Byron.

There are of course many anthologies of this poet, most with more elaborate notes and explication.

But I love many of these poems so much that I am happy to see them again in any new edition.

The poetry of the English Romantic period is among the greatest Mankind has.

On that basis primarily I would recommend this volume.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Buy it for Quayle's Wordsworth. 29. November 2002
Von Peter Reeve - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Hörkassette|Verifizierter Kauf
Ralph Richardson was such a fine actor, how could he produce such a dreadful rendition of Coleridge and Blake? His 'Kubla Khan' sounds for all the world like a master of ceremonies at a boxing match -- 'And in the red corner, representing Xanadu...!' It's painful to listen to. He declaims and announces rather than recites. However -- and it is a big however -- Frederick Worlock's recitation of Burns and Anthony Quayle's Shelley and Wordsworth are superb. In particular, Quayle delivers Wordsworth with an insight and sensitivity that is truly remarkable. His is a carefully thought out and finely-honed performance. If these particular recordings are not available elsewhere (I have no idea if they are) then it's worth buying these tapes just for them. Worlock too is excellent, perfectly at home with Burns' dialect. But Quayle's performance is of the sort that takes you to another place.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Priceless Poetry at a Budget Price 17. Juli 2009
Von Robin Friedman - Veröffentlicht auf
I have had this inexpensive Dover Thrift Edition anthology of English romantic poetry for many years. I keep it on a readily accessible shelf in my office and browse in it for inspiration. It is always a pleasure during a harried and wearying day simply to hold this little volume in my hands.

The book consists of a generous selection of 123 poems from six English romantic poets: William Blake (1757 - 1827); William Wordsworth (1770 -1850); Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 - 1834); Lord Byron (1778-1824); Percy Shelly (1792 - 1822); and John Keats (1795 - 1821). The book also includes a short introduction by editor Stanley Appelbaum, who has edited several books in the Dover series, together with a brief sketch of each poet.

For each poet, the selections include both short and long poems. The selections are extensive enough that they go beyond the familiar and will introduce most readers to works that are likely unfamiliar to them. The Blake selections include short poems from both "Songs of Innocence and "Songs of Experience" and other short lyrics. They also include longer works such as the "Proverbs of Hell" from "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell." Blake remains my favorite poet, and it is always good to be reminded of him. For example, here is Blake's short poem, "Mock on, mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau", (p. 10) for my own edification and, I hope, to whet the reader's interest.

"Mock on, Mock on Voltaire Rousseau
Mock on Mock on! tis all in vain!
You throw the sand against the wind
And the wind blows it back again

And every sand becomes a Gem
Reflected in the beams divine
Blown back they blind the mocking Eye
But still in Israels paths they shine

The Atoms of Democritus
And Newtons Particles of light
Are sands upon the Red sea shore
Where Israels tents do shine so bright."

The Wordsworth selections include a collection of sonnets, the famous "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey", and selections from "The Prelude". Coleridge's inexhaustible "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is given in full together with "Kubla Khan" and other works. The Byron selections include several short love lyrics, including "She walks in beauty" together with selections from "Don Juan" and "Childe Harold". The Shelley selections include the great sonnet "Ozymandias" and the "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty", "The Cloud" and "Adonais: an Elegy written on the Death of John Keats." Keats himself is represented by his four great odes and by sonnets such as "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer" and "Bright Star."

As other Amazon reviewers have observed, this book includes little in the way of background, commentary, or analysis. The volume would not be suitable for scholarly purposes or, probably, for introducing high school or college students to this great poetry. But the Thrift Editions are not designed for these purposes. For readers who want an inexpensive, easy to handle and reasonably large selection of poetry from the English romantics to read from time to time and to refresh their hearts, this volume is ideal.
