A Preface to Wordsworth Paperback

Part of the Preface Books series


Probably the most famous of the Romantic poets, William Wordsworth worked with and influenced many of the leading poets of the age.

This excellent introduction to his life and works sets his writing firmly in the context of his times.

John Purkis provides an outline of Wordsworth's life and cultural background and their effect on his work, and examines his verse, from the earliest school poems to the final years.
