The bird is traditionally an image of the poetic voice and, as such, held much appeal for poets of the Romantic period — and beyond. We shall read about the nightingale and the skylark, of course, but also the snipe and the owl, always looking to discover the poets' perspective on each bird — from the ethereal to the terrestrial, from the fanciful to the carefully observed.
