More > quaint and naïve pockets like these binary towns whose inhabitants are resistant to change. Alas the enlightenment is indeed brought before them when a young bachelor and engineer, Thomas Winter – the son of a wealthy industrialist – moves into the area with the intention of applying science to their fields to produce higher crop yields. Further their local Anglican parson, Jonathan Moore, begins a series of science lectures dedicated to the memory of his recently departed brother, in which the subjects of deep time, uniformitarianism, plutonism, &c. are introduced alongside pre-Darwinian evolution. Such is taken rather poorly by the towns' Baptists, led by the preacher George Edwards and funded by the recently wealthy Henry Wyatt, who conspire against these scientific men, the latter motivated by romantic adversity.< Less
The Pedestrian, Wordsworth By Rodney Jones
Hardcover: $31.17
Prints in 3-5 business days
In “A Letter to a friend of Robert Burns”, Wordsworth wrote "And, of poets more especially, it is true – that, if their works be good, they contain within themselves all... More > that is necessary to their being comprehended and relished". While it is improbable that this assertion was true when he wrote it in 1816, it is certainly not the case for readers of his poetry today. The historical context in which his poetry was written - and which is often reflected in the poems themselves - is, in many respects, little known to today’s students of the romantic period, nor to those who simply enjoy reading Wordsworth's poetry. This set of books seeks to remedy that deficiency by providing much needed contextual information. This first volume is set against the background of Wordsworth's life from his birth at Cockermouth in 1770 until his return from Germany in the Spring of 1799. Two subsequent volumes will cover his life in Grasmere and at Rydal Mount respectively.< Less
