The Georgian poets
Read the text below and find the five mistakes in it.

Before the Second World War there was a sharp distinction between the avant-garde groups and the poets still influenced by the Shakespearean Romantic tradition. The poets of the first group are known as the Georgian poets, from the anthology Georgian Poetry, published during the reign of George V. Among these poets were Rupert Hulme, Walter de la Mare and Edward Thomas. They focused on typically English elements like the countryside and used the convention of diction. They were always indifferent or even hostile to the new sensibility and technique of the Classicists, who included W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot.
