‘The Romantic Poets – Special Stamp Issues’
The stamps also celebrate other major Romantic poets: William Blake; John Keats; Lord Byron; Samuel Taylor Coleridge; Mary Robinson; Percy Bysshe Shelley; Walter Scott; John Clare; and Letitia Elizabeth Landon.
Each stamp uses an extract from one of their most popular and enduring works, along with a specially-commissioned illustration that reflects the theme of the poem.
