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.

Peacock and Vine by A. S. Byatt Peacock and Vine, Hardback (July 2016)

Born a generation apart, they were seeming opposites: Mariano Fortuny, a Spanish aristocrat thrilled by the cultures of Crete and Knossos; William Morris, a British craftsman, in thrall to the myths of the North.

UK Kirkus Review » William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge first met in 1795. Wordsworth had spent a year in Paris and returned shocked and disillusioned by the terror, and guilt-ridden by his affair with Annette Vallon and their illegitimate child. Reserved, uncertain of his future, the only person he felt happy with was his sister Dorothy. Coleridge, eloquent, brilliant ('entirely led away by the feeling of the moment', wrote a contemporary), was searching for stability. Their resulting friendship, first manifest by the publication of Lyrical Ballads in 1796, is traced through many years and many vicissitudes in Byatt's erudite, sympathetic study of their lives and turbulent times. First published in 1970, re-issued unchanged but for the author's addendum about the subsequent discovery of William and Mary's 'revelatory' correspondence. (Kirkus UK)
