In an increasingly industrial age, William Wordsworth's belief in the importance of imagination and feeling touched a chord with the nation. Juliet Barker's balanced and meticulously researched biography, which draws on previously unpublished sources, recreates the intimacy of Wordsworth's domestic circle. Far from being the cold, solitary figure of legend, Wordsworth emerges from this outstanding portrait as a passionate, vibrant man who lived for his family, his poetry and his beloved Lakeland. His legacy remains with us to this day.
