The Simple Wordsworth : Studies in the Poems 1979-1807, Paperback / softback Book

The Simple Wordsworth : Studies in the Poems 1979-1807 Paperback / softback

Part of the RLE: Wordsworth and Coleridge series

Description

First published in 1960, this book studies Wordsworth's `simple' poems, such as the Lyrical Ballads, as products of a sophisticated and powerfully successful literary genius.

The author aims to approach the poems as perhaps Wordsworth expected his first readers to; but as they have never been in fact.

The result of this approach is to discover a Wordsworth far different to that which he has previously been presented as - the `Sage of Rydal' at one extreme and a naive perpetrator of poetical blunders at the other - and, the author argues, a far more exciting one.

This book will be of interest to students of literature.
