Lake Poets, The: William Wordsworth

Synopsis
The term ‘Lake poets’ was first used in the August 1817 ‘Edinburgh Review’ to describe William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey in a derogatory manner. History now regards the work turned out by these poets between 1797 and 1807 as forming a defining era in English literature, and their achievements are discussed here by such critics as Robert Woof, Jonathan Wordsworth, Grevel Lindop, Molly Lefebure and Pamela Woof. In addition, several of William Wordsworth’s ‘lake’ works are read by Ted Hughes.
