Wordsworth's Poems of Travel 1819-1842 : Such Sweet Wayfaring Hardback
by J. Wyatt
Part of the Romanticism in Perspective:Texts, Cultures, Histories series
There is a long-held view that Wordsworth's inspiration dried up before the age of forty.
This book opposes that view by examining the substantial body of poetry written after his fiftieth year.
The argument is that, in order to appreciate this work, much of which was inspired by itineraries in Britain and in Europe, we have to read the poems as they were first published.
By adopting the perspective of the contemporary reader, Wordsworth's grand design can be appreciated.
