    Questions about the Canon

    Hi I was wondering if anyone can tell me about the canon of English Literature (or reccommend a website that can) I am looking at William Blake, William Wordsworth and Mary Darby Robinson in particular, but I can't find any information to suggest Robinson is in the canon. Can you help?

    Welcome, hk6aj.

    I believe - given the feminist revision of the Canon - Robinson's works are considered part of "the expanding" Romantic canon. (See the current Norton Anthology.)
