Selected poetry by William Wordsworth( Book )

23 editions published between 1950 and 2008 in English and held by 1,310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wordsworth's verse declares a belief in the power of poetry to teach by appealing to the imagination and to the 'grand elementary principle of pleasure, by which man knows, and feels, and lives, and moves'. His unique relationship with the poet and political activist Samuel Taylor Coleridge, formed in the political and social ferment of the 1790s, produced a revolution in literature, resulting in the joint volume, Lyrical Ballads (1798-1805) - a landmark in the history of English Romanticism. This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes all Wordsworth's finest lyrics, and a large sample of The Prelude (1805), his extraordinary autobiographical poem in blank verse and the first truly great achievement of a new era in English poetry

25 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published five years after William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's popular collection Lyrical Ballads, Wordsworth's Poems, in Two Volumes shocked readers and drew scornful reviews. Poems was a revolutionary challenge to literary taste in revolution-weary times. The poems were perceived as inappropriately personal, "puerile," and egotistical in the attention that the poet pays to "moods of [his own] mind." The collection is now seen as containing some of the most enduring works of British Romantic poetry, and Wordsworth's achievement in opening up new worlds of subject matter, emotion, and poetic expression is widely recognized."--
