Reading The Romantics: Challenge
Posted by Tiffany at 9:57 AM

We did a small unit on The Romantics in my GATS class my sophomore year of high school and I saved all of the materials, thinking I'm going to come back to this and do a lot more reading. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to it quite yet. This is why, when I spotted this challenge hosted by Adam at The Roof Beam Reader, I was really excited. I love the way it's set up, as well: two weeks for each writer. I can't wait to get started! If you're interested, follow the link and grab the button. (Or just grab the button to promote.) Here are the details, from his blog:

 The Poets & Our Schedule:

The Poets:
Blake (1757-1827)
Shelley (1772-1822)
Coleridge (1772-1834)
Byron (1788-1824)
Keats (1795-1821)
Wordsworth (1770-1850)

The Reading Time Line:
Blake: October 1st - October 14th
Shelley: October 15th - October 28th
Coleridge: October 29th - November 11th
Byron: November 12th - November 25th
Keats: November 26th - December 9th
Wordsworth: December 10th - December 23rd  

I don't know that I'll get everything read, but I'm definitely going to read as much as I can for each segment.
