A. The notoriety of the Lake School

The Lake School refers to a group of English poets at the turn of the 19th century, including William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey.

While their works were influential in literature and poetry, their notoriety wasn’t a direct factor in the growth of the general reading public.

Instead, their impact was more confined to the realm of literary development and the evolution of Romanticism in English literature.
