The prelude : the four texts (1798, 1799, 1805, 1850) by William Wordsworth( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in July 1850, shortly after Wordsworth's death, The Prelude was the culmination of over fifty years of creative work. The great Romantic poem of human consciousness, it takes as its theme 'the growth of a poet's mind': leading the reader back to Wordsworth's formative moments of childhood and youth, and detailing his experiences as a radical undergraduate in France at the time of the Revolution. Initially inspired by Coleridge's exhortation that Wordsworth write a work upon the French Revolution, The Prelude has ultimately become one of the finest examples of poetic autobiography ever written; a fascinating examination of the self that also presents a comprehensive view of the poet's own creative vision
Ancestral voices : fifty books from the Romantic period by J. W Wordsworth( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Books tend to be submerged, their importance and individuality lost in the construct of literary history. The reading public of the Romantic period had no idea what its age would come to stand for. To take a sampling of fifty books that made an impact at the time is to see cross-currents and connexions, rising and falling reputations, and quite unexpected patterns emerging. Alongside the great, minor voices turn out to be of importance; the great themselves appear as they first appeared to their contemporaries, not as time has since created them. There is, as Hazlitt pointed out in 1825, a spirit to the Romantic age, and the books it produced show it in surprising guises and places. Ancestral voices is based on the introductions to the Woodstock Revolution and Romanticism series--but revised and extended--and so constitutes a handy guide to the riches of the series. But it has value beyond that. It may be read cover to cover as a chronological voyage through the period, or sampled at random, book by book. It is indexed so that trends, themes, achievements and careers may be easily uncovered. It thus provides for the reader an insight into the ideological, social and historical underpinning of the revolutionary period, and shows how the poets, playwrights, novelists and thinkers of the time belonged to and transcended it
The bright work grows : women writers of the Romantic Age by Jonathan Wordsworth( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume of studies Professor Wordsworth assesses the contribution of women to the literature of the Romantic period. He discusses poets (Baillie, Barbauld, Betham, Blamire, Caroline Bowles, Bryan, Hemans, Landon, Lickbarrow, Norton, Robinson, Seward, Williams, Yearsley), novelists, storytellers and essayists (Austen, Burney, Sara Coleridge, Hays, Inchbald, Caroline Lamb, Mary Lamb, Mitford, Opie, Owenson, Ann Radcliffe, Mary Shelley, Smith), polemicists and pamphleteers (Mary Anne Radcliffe, Southcott, Wollstonecraft), and writers on education (Edgeworth, Catharine Macaulay, Hannah More). With a substantial introduction and index The Bright Work Grows is a powerful, engaged and plain-speaking introduction to women's writing during a time when attitudes and conventions were undergoing fundamental change."--BOOK JACKET
