A Commentary on Wordsworth's Prelude : Books I-V, Paperback / softback Book

A Commentary on Wordsworth's Prelude : Books I-V Paperback / softback

Part of the RLE: Wordsworth and Coleridge series


First published in 1983, this books aims to guide Wordsworth students through his difficult masterpiece by reading it in continuous sequence and making its sense emerge.

The special value of this commentary is that it explains the structure of The Prelude by encouraging study of the poem as a continuous whole rather than selectively looking at individual sections - an approach that has typified modern criticism of the work.

This depends upon a close attention to the careful arrangement of the verse paragraphs, all of which make an indispensable contribution to the overall thought pattern, thus leading to a fuller appreciation and understanding of the poem.
