An interesting, highly readable, and somewhat controversial analysis of the reasons that, though their poetry refers to, talks about, and draws on the imagery of African slavery, the great English Romantic poets Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Byron, and Shelley rarely speak directly against the harsh truths of the slave trade and colonial slavery, and then do so to no great effect.
