Wordsworth, A Life

By

The author, well known for her acclaimed work The Brontës, has skillfully interwoven a wealth of published and unpublished material to create a scholarly biography that is also uncommonly readable. Wordsworth’s life—public, private, and poetic—as well as the doings of his circle are laid before the reader in a thorough style which cheerfully recalls period journals. Although Wordsworth’s star has dimmed in our classrooms, Ms. Barker’s work will serve as a timely reminder of his undiminished influence upon the modern mind.
