    Book details

I cannot, perhaps, more fitly begin this short biography than with some words in which its subject has expressed his own feelings as to the spirit in which such a task should be approached. "Silence," says Wordsworth, "is a privilege of the grave, a right of the departed: let him, therefore, who infringes that right by speaking publicly of, for, or against, those who cannot speak for themselves, take heed that he opens not his mouth without a sufficient sanction.

First published in 1881, this biography explores the work of William Wordsworth (1770–1850). Arguing that Wordsworth's poems marked the transition from neoclassicism to romanticism in English verse, it reveals how his profound imagination and thought characterised the romantic era, and made a major contribution to English literary history. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Paperback.

  • By Robert Currie on 11 October 2015

    Having just completed a free on-line course in Future Learning on Wordsworth with Lancaster University, I was nothing short of thrilled to find that I could have a Kindle copy of this life of Wordsworth FREE courtesy of Amazon. Wow!
