The Glorious Romantics, directed by Richard M. Russell, is a drama that ran on PBS as part of a series on classic poets. A panel of actors and actresses portray the lives of three Romantic poets, Lord Byron (Neil Hunt), John Keats (Nicholas Woodeson), and Percy Shelley (Stephen Lang), while eloquently giving performances of their selected poems. Some of Byron's works included are "Oh You, Who in All Names Can Tickle the Town," "Written After Swimming from Sestos to Abydos," and "Maid of Athens, Ere We Part." Famous poems by Keats presented are "A thing of beauty is a joy forever," "Epistle to Charles Cowden Clarke," and "Ode on a Grecian Urn." Some of Shelley's included works are "Jenny Kissed Me," "Ozymandias," and "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty." The actors portray the more controversial sides of the poet's lives, including Lord Byron's suspected bisexuality and romantic relationship with his sister. This film is perfect for both students and fans of Romantic poetry, because it is both entertaining and educational.moreless
