Greater than the other interval of British literature, Romanticism is strongly pointed out with a unmarried style. Romantic poetry has been some of the most enduring, most sensible enjoyed, most generally learn and most often studied genres for 2 centuries and is still no much less so this present day.

Rather, I am interested in seeing how Robinson’s manifesto, like Wordsworth’s that followed, resonated with competing Romantic models of art and its relations to the social. As mentioned earlier, Robinson’s essay was published in the Monthly in four parts—1 August, 1 September, 1 October, and 1 November 1800. 40 During this same time, Robinson and Coleridge enjoyed an ongoing poetic correspondence in the Morning Post (where Robinson served as poetry editor). ”45 I suggest that, in addition to these acknowledged poetic affinities and influences, Robinson’s “Present State of the Manners and Society of the Metropolis of England” may have been an inspiration for Wordsworth’s Preface.
