The Concept of Literary Sublime Reflected in Select Works of William Wordsworth, S.T. Coleridge and John Keats
Although the 1st century B.C.E. (supposedly) concept of the sublime almost demands the tedious following of a refined rulebook, the 1st and 2nd generation Romantic poets have individually or unitedly catered to the requirements of the same and have enabled readers, through their works, to experience true sublimity in literature, especially in poetry. Minor digressions are the result of flexibility in demand in later, more rational times, but the essence has remained untainted through both experimental works and pieces that have a more traditional touch.
