Keats and Coleridge

Hello Y12

I hope you've been enjoying the sunshine, marvelling in the joys of nature like true Romantics!

There was an excellent series on the BBC a few years ago on the Romantics. Here is a link to Coleridge and the Imagination a Romantic Trainspotting as it details Coleridge's descent in to addiction. Here is a link to the friendship of Coleridge and Wordsworth.

Here is an extract of the same series about Keats. If you click on the link for Keats, Shelley and Adonais on the right hand side, it will take you to the subseqfuent video.

Watch the whole series via YouTube (first link is below); it is an efficient way to revise your understanding of the Romantics.

Finally, if you'd like some reading, this is quite a good biography of Coleridge and Wordsworth. I think you can even get it in the £2 bookshop on St Aldates - bargain!

More to follow ASAP.
