In 1813 Robert Southey accepted the Poet Laureateship—an act that, in the following years and in critical history, came to symbolise the divide between the ‘Lake poets’ Wordsworth, Southey, Coleridge — once radical, now ‘reactionary’ —, and their disappointed admirers Shelley, Byron, Keats and Hazlitt.
Two hundred years later, close by Greta Hall — Southey’s and Coleridge’s home— this conference explored Southey’s work and that of his allies, followers and enemies.
