The Georgian poets were, by the strictest definition, those whose works appeared in a series of five anthologies named Georgian Poetry, published by Harold Monro and edited by Edward Marsh. The first volume contained poems written in 1911 and 1912. The poets included Edmund Blunden, Rupert Brooke, Robert Graves, D. H. Lawrence, Walter de la Mare and Siegfried Sassoon.

The period of publication was sandwiched between the Victorian era, with its strict classicism, and Modernism, with its strident rejection of pure aestheticism. The common features of the poems in these publications were romanticism, sentimentality and hedonism.

Later critics have attempted to revise the definition of the term as a description of poetic style, thereby including some new names or excluding some old ones.

Henry Newbolt, writing in the early 1930s, estimated that there were at least 1000 active British poets; the vast majority of these would be recognisably 'Georgian', making the pool of names close to unfathomable.
