I see it like this: Coleridge > Wordsworth > Tennyson > Shelley

Tennyson doesn't properly belong to that group at all. He's more of a Victorian. I dig Wordsworth a lot, at least before he turned into an industrialist propaganda poet. But Shelley is the man. I'd rank them Shelley > Keats > Wordsworth > Coleridge > > > > Byron. Fellow English Romantic William Blake doesn't figure into the scale because he's just too plain fucking weird.

Fair enough. But yeah, Lord Byron is...meh.

Anyway, something of Tennyson's is actually considered the first published Romantic work in most literary circles. I wish I could remember what it was so it doesn't seem like I'm BSing this
