William Wordsworth, the poetic life by John L Mahoney( )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Wordsworth: A Poetic Life is a new biography of the great father of British Romanticism. It is new in several ways, most notably in the way it approaches the life of the poet. Paying its proper respect to the classic lives of Wordsworth by Mary Moorman and Stephen Gill, it attempts to tell the story of the life through a more rigorous reading of key and representative works by the poet and through a careful blending of his life and poetry. Wordsworth offers the story of the literariness of the poet's life - childhood and adolescence in the Lake District, education at Cambridge, love and political radicalism in France, the long period of residence in Grasmere and Rydal, celebrity, and national and international recognition. Its reading of the poems, in tune with current theoretical practice, offers a sense of the continuities in Wordsworth's career as it moves away from familiar theories of a Golden Decade of creativity and a period of long decline. The book also works closely and rigorously with Wordworth's poetry as a method of dramatizing the essentially poetic character of the poet's life

Wordsworth and the critics : the development of a critical reputation by John L Mahoney( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"William Wordsworth, often regarded as the High Priest of British Romantic Poetry, had the longest career of the Romantics, one extending from his days as a schoolboy almost to the end of his life in 1850, from the Lyrical Ballads and descriptive poetry of the 1790s to the late poetry of the 1840s. With this long career came a remarkable history of critical reception: from reviews by his contemporaries in journals and magazines; to the major statements of Matthew Arnold, John Stuart Mill, and others; to the amazing variety of books, essays, and theoretical approaches of the twentieth century. Although there are a number of studies about the critical reception of Wordsworth's poetry and critical theory, Professor Mahoney's book is the first full-length study of how critics - from the earliest reviewers to the major Victorian voices, to the enormous twentieth-century response - have approached the many facets of the great English Romantic's work. Mahoney does not aim at following the course of Wordsworth's life and career, as many admirable and recent biographies have done; rather he follows the course of a critical reputation as it has evolved from the poet's earliest probes to the present day. Thus Wordsworth and the Critics offers an engaging narrative of the reputation of this most prominent of Romantic poets."--Jacket

The fountain light : studies in romanticism and religion : in honor of John L. Mahoney ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"These original essays, written in honor of distinguished scholar John L. Mahoney, explore the intersection of Romanticism and religion. They range from broad considerations of this relationship in several Romantic writers to close readings of individual poems. This book will be of interest not only to scholars of Romanticism and historians of nineteenth-century religion, but also to anyone interested in the intellectual life of nineteenth-century England."--Jacket
