Unruly Times

Wordsworth and Coleridge in Their Time




With the insight only a novelist can provide, A. S. Byatt vividly conjures into being the world of Wordsworth and Coleridge.

Unruly Times is a superlative portrait of the relationship between Wordsworth and Coleridge, and a fascinating exploration of the Romantic Movement and the dramatic events that shaped it. With a novelist's insight and eye for detail, A. S. Byatt brings alive this tumultuous period and shows a deep understanding of the effects upon the minds of Wordsworth, Coleridge and their contemporaries - de Quincey, Lamb, Hazlitt, Byron and Keats.
