Introduction: “Poets and Poesy I Sing”

Part of the Nineteenth-Century Major Lives and Letters book series (19CMLL)


John Thelwall: Selected Poetry and Poetics is the first modern collection of the remarkably wide-ranging and original poetry and criticism of a Romantic-era radical better known for his political activism than his literary art. It draws from new manuscript material to offer a representative selection that complements recent editions of Thelwall’s political writing, plays, and novels,1 and contributes to an accelerating project of archival rediscovery and critical revival.
