With an encapsulated study of the parallel evolution of poetry and painting and their inter-artistic bend since centuries; this book is an inter-disciplinary study to look back and examine the effect of G E Lessing's warning to artists in Laocoon. Encounters: Poetry, Painting and Society is an interdisciplinary study that engages in bringing out converges between text and image through intersections in the works of Romantic poets like Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley and Byron with the paintings of Gainsborough, Constable and Turner. A juxtaposition of verbal and visual media aims to reflect on how the two arts form a continuous weaving and changing of traditions that establish the ever-existing reciprocal relationship between the two sister arts.
