William Wordsworth was born in Cumberland in 1770, his birthplace near to what is known as the Lake District had a considerable influence on his poetry. After going to University in Cambridge , he... More > travelled extensively in Europe especially the Alps region. He was very close to his sister Dorothy and even when he married Mary Hutchinson, his sister lived with the couple. In the preface to Lyrical Ballads , Wordsworth set out the central tenet of the Romantic movement which was to seek a new realism in poetry based on the “real language of man”. Wordsworth with other poets such as Coleridge and Southey lived in the Lake District and formed the basis of what was known as the Lakeland poets. Wordsworth and the rest of the Lakeland poets achieved considerable fame in their lifetime, Wordsworth being made Poet Laureate in 1843, he died in 1850 and was buried in Grasmere at the heart of his beloved Lake District.< Less

The Pedestrian, Wordsworth By Rodney Jones
Hardcover: $31.17
Ships in 6-8 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

In this modest volume the author reflects on the Sequence of Sonnets concerning the River Duddon which William Wordsworth published in April 1820. In the same volume Wordsworth included his poem... More > "Vaudracour and Julia" and his prose travel guide "A Topographical Description of the Country of the Lakes". Although William Wordsworth had now reached his 50th year, this publication was his first real commercial success as a poet. The 'Duddon' Sonnets are somewhat neglected today and his modern popularity rests largely with the "Lyrical Ballads" - partly a collaboration with Coleridge - and his autobiographical poem "The Prelude". The sequence provides an enchanting description of the River and its environs as it falls from its source among the Central Fells of Cumbria to the Irish Sea, as well as providing a master-class in the art of the Sonneteer.< Less
Wordsworth's 'Thanksgiving Ode' in Context By Richard Gravil
Paperback: $4.71
Ships in 3-5 business days
Wordsworth’s ‘Thanksgiving Ode’ expresses the poet’s sentiments on the final outcome of the Napoleonic Wars. It is possibly Wordsworth’s most notorious poem, widely... More > criticized for its alleged bellicosity and for one line in particular, addressed to God: ‘Yea, Carnage is thy Daughter’. Richard Gravil argues that the poem is a strenuous exercise in Christian Thanksgiving, appropriate to the close of two decades of global war. Its tone is reflective and self-searching, not bellicose, as befits a poet who called the Battle of Waterloo ‘a hideous rout’. Its thought is grounded in the Old Testament, as were the numerous sermons preached on the morning of 18 January 1816, a ‘Day Appointed for a General Thanksgiving’. The booklet explicates the poem’s demanding argument, and places it alongside a range of sermons offered by the Bishop of London, Anglican vicars, a Canadian rector, a Vicar Apostolic and a Unitarian Minister, united in thanksgiving at the close of what was, in reality, the first World War.< Less
