The Lake Poets all lived in the Lake District of England at the turn of the nineteenth century. As a group, they followed no single "school" of thought or literary practice then known, although their works were uniformly disparaged by the Edinburgh Review. They are considered part of the Romantic Movement.

The three poets of what since became known as the Lake School were William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey.
