The unit examines the birth and development of British romanticism from romance. It begins with a brief study of romance, chiefly in Spenser and Milton, passes to a study of forgery, examines the work of William Blake, and concentrates on the writings of the Wordsworth Circle: the poetry of William Wordsworth, and S. T. Coleridge, and the journals of Dorothy Wordsworth.
