"Poems, 1799" by Robert Southey
Robert Southey was an English poet of the Romantic school. Southey began as a radical but became steadily more conservative as he gained respect for Britain and its institutions. This collection of poems dates back to Southey's more radical roots. From talking about his travels to putting the thoughts and feelings of the British poor into words, these poems bring Southey's political ideals to light in a beautiful and artistic way.
