Procrastination Aids: If You Were a Major Romantic Poet


You are William Blake! Wow. I'm impressed. Not only are you a self-made artist and poet, but you've suddenly become a very trendy guy to like. It's not that we doubt that you have all your marbles, it's just that we're not quite sure what you did with them to come up with those terrifying theological visions. The people of your time were nowhere near as forgiving as that, and all your neighbors thought you were a grade-A nut job. But we love you, so rest happy.
Take this quiz!

The link was there but not showing up in a different color type. Fixed it. Have fun, and be sure to let me know who you are.

Well . . . I admit I like the "obvious genius" part . . . !


"You are Samuel Taylor Coleridge! The infamous "archangel a little damaged!" You took drugs and talked for hours, it's true, but you also made a conscious choice to cultivate the image of the deranged poet in a frenzy of genius. You claimed you wrote "Kubla Khan" in an afternoon after a laudanum, when you pretty manifestly did no such thing. You and your flashing eyes and floating hair. And your brilliant scholarship and obvious genius."

Wordsworth. Somehow I'm not surprised. I've always liked Wordsworth. He even lived in the village of Holford at one time.

I am dreamy Shelley, skipping along and falling into a stream. The description said that all my female readers are swooning over me too (or something like that:).

Fun.
