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.

The Georgianpoets 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.
Georgian Poetry was the title of a series of anthologies showcasing the work of a school of English poetry that established itself during the early years of the reign of King George V of the United Kingdom.
Edward Marsh was the general editor of the series and the centre of the circle of Georgianpoets, which included Rupert Brooke.
