POETS LIFE SPAN INDEX: 18TH CENTURY


This index shows the lifespan of most of the poets on our website who lived during the 1700s. Many poets in the 18th century lived very long lives, such as Jonathan Swift, William Wordsworth and Goethe; while others, such as Robert Burns, Lord Byron and John Keats, had a much shorter time on this earth. Poets born in the 1790s are on the 19th century chart. 

The color legend below (with links to the poem index for each country) indicates the poet's nationality. For clickable thumbnails of poets on this site, be sure to visit the Poets' Wall.
