When delving into the history of English poetry, one cannot ignore the early reviews that shaped the perception of these literary geniuses. As we embark on this journey, prepare to be amazed, shocked, and intrigued by the untold tales of criticism and acclaim.

John Milton, the renowned author of "Paradise Lost", faced more than his fair share of criticism during his lifetime. One early review, published in the 17th century, labeled his epic poem as "overblown and pretentious". Little did the reviewer know that "Paradise Lost" would go on to become one of the greatest works of English literature, studied and revered for centuries. Milton's ability to seamlessly blend religious themes with captivating storytelling eventually silenced his early critics, showcasing the enduring impact of his remarkable talent.

William Shakespeare, another iconic figure in English poetry, faced a mix of positive and negative reviews during his time. A contemporary review of "Hamlet" described the play as "confusing and convoluted", while another review criticized the excessive use of soliloquies. However, the fact that Shakespeare's works continue to be performed and celebrated worldwide today is a testament to his mastery of the English language and his ability to captivate audiences through his unique storytelling techniques.

Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland, also had his fair share of early reviews. Some critics dismissed his poems as mere rustic ramblings, failing to recognize the profound emotion and deep cultural significance contained within his verses. Today, Burns is considered a pioneer of Romantic poetry and his works, such as "Auld Lang Syne", are cultural touchstones that continue to resonate with people from all walks of life.

It is important to note that early reviews do not always accurately reflect the true value of a poet's work. The opinions of critics in the past were influenced by various factors such as personal prejudices, societal expectations, and literary trends of the time. It is only with the passage of time and the critical reevaluation of works that the true genius of these poets shines through.

While some poets may have faced harsh criticism in their early years, others were fortunate enough to receive praise and recognition. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, for instance, was praised for his imaginative and mystical poetry. His poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was well-received upon its initial publication, with critics commending its vivid imagery and haunting narrative. Coleridge's ability to transport readers into realms of the supernatural is a testament to his unique talent as a poet.

Although early reviews often stir controversy and spark debate, they serve as a reflection of the times in which these poets lived. They shed light on the evolving taste and preferences of readers and the literary landscape of each era. Early reviews can be seen as stepping stones that ultimately contribute to the development of poetic traditions, shaping the course of English literature as a whole.

So, what can we learn from the early reviews of English poets? We should approach them with caution, recognizing their limitations and biases. We should not let the opinions of others define the value of a poet's work. Instead, we should dive into the poems themselves, immersing ourselves in the beauty of their language, the depth of their emotions, and the timeless messages they convey.

The early reviews of English poets are not to be dismissed or disregarded, but they should be examined with an open mind and a critical eye. They provide valuable insights into the journey these poets embarked upon, the challenges they faced, and the enduring legacy they left behind.

Now, armed with this knowledge, we can truly appreciate the immense talent and lasting impact of the early English poets who dared to challenge the norms and create masterpieces that continue to inspire and touch our souls.
