Wrong comparison. INCORRECT

A. The work of Byron and Shelley, like other poets of their era, explored themes of love and beauty, which gave rise to the school of poetry known as Romanticism. - here WHICH incorrectly modifies love and beauty rather than themes

B. Byron and Shelley, like other poets of their era, explored themes of love and beauty in their work, giving rise to the school of poetry known as Romanticism. - Correct. Here Verb-ing modifier GIVING acts as a result to the action and is correctly worded to show the result.

C. Like other poets of their era, Byron and Shelley's work explored themes of love and beauty, giving rise to the school of poetry known as Romanticism. - Incorrect comparison

D. Love and beauty are themes explored by the work of Byron and Shelley, like they were by other poets of the era, and they gave rise to the school of poetry known as Romanticism. - Awkward construction and passive voice. + THEY refers to what ? is not clear.

E. The school of poetry known as Romanticism rose from the works of Byron and Shelley, which was like that of other poets of the era in exploring themes of love and beauty- Awkward construction
