This study examines a confused and confusing literary period by examining the minor poets of that time. The minor poets were then, as are the minor poets of today, extremely important in forming and shaping the artistic patterns of their time. For each of the poets there is a brief biographical sketch, an examination of the literary influences on each, major themes, ideas and motifs, and representative poems.
