Description
Information
William Wordsworth is usually remembered as the quintessential Victorian Poet Laureate: a dull, worthy establishment figure, with impeccable middle-class, Tory, Anglican credentials, whose moralistic poetry has been required reading for generations of yawning school children. Yet there is so much more to Wordsworth than 'Daffodils' and 'The Prelude'.

This selection of letters and autobiographical fragments introduces us to the real Wordsworth: the rebellious schoolboy, who vandalized his family portraits, became a supporter of the French Revolution and fathered an illegitimate daughter in France.

Juliet Barker, author of the highly acclaimed biography 'Wordsworth: A Life', has brought together an unrivalled range of sources to allow the poet himself, for the first time ever, to tell his own story in his own words, assisted by those closest to him. The result is an intimate, authentic and revealing portrait of Wordsworth, his family and his times.
