Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195215605, Paperback)

Poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) was the leader of the Romantic movement in British literature. He was strongly influenced by the ideology of the French Revolution and by the landscape of Britain's Lake Country, where he lived for most of his life. Among his most famous poems are "Tintern Abbey" (published in Lyrical Ballads, which he wrote with his friend and colleague Samuel Taylor Coleridge), "Ode: Intimations of Immortality," "The Solitary Reaper," "Daffodils," and numerous sonnets. Wordsworth's poetry is a staple of the U.S. high school English curriculum, and his home, Dove Cottage, is a much-visited tourist site in Britain's Lake District.

About the series:
The British Library is in a unique position when it comes to biographical research, especially concerning British authors. This revered institution boasts the world's largest collection of original manuscripts, as well as an outstanding collection of letters, personal diaries, first editions, and other literary treasures. The titles in this series take full advantage of this vast source of documentary evidence by illustrating each of these lively writers' biographies with state-of-the-art facsimiles of pertinent documents and reproductions of art from the period. Penned by expert biographers, each of these books also contains an index, further reading list, and a chronology of the writer's life.

"In this biography, the author traces the details of Wordsworth's life - his studies at Cambridge, his early travels in France and his passionate support of the French Revolution, his return to the Lake District, and his marriage and children - that have such a presence in his autobiographical poems. Wordsworth's work had a tremendous influence on his contemporaries, such as Shelley and Keats, and on later generations of poets." "This introduction to Wordsworth's life and work is filled with a wide variety of photographs, portraits, and paintings, as well as original manuscripts from the British Library, the Wordsworth Trust, and other sources."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
