Four Poets in English

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2012-12/25/content_2327926.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you know anything about Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, or Yeats? Have you read any of their works?
2. Blake's and Yeats's poetry is often about mystical things. Why is this a good subject for poetry?
3. All of these poets can be considered "Romantic." What does that mean? (It's NOT about love between a man and a woman!)
