  1. James says:

    Possibly Bloom s masterpiece, this is the ultimate study of the English Romantics Bloom s earliest books are his most essential, and this is very likely the best of these Beautiful analysis throughout.

  2. John says:

    I have read and referred to this book over many years An excellent study of the British Romantics It does not go into the weeds as much as some of Bloom s studies perhaps because he wrote this early in his career This one is plainer, straightforward, with good analyses For an understanding of William Blake, this book is as good as any study written, in my opinion.

  3. Muzzy says:

    Bloom s prose is at its very best here If you haven t read any Bloom yet, I highly recommend you start here His chapter on Percy Shelley alone is beautiful some of the clearest explication I ve ever encountered The English Romantics owe Harold Bloom a huge debt for preserving their memory in America.
