5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Volume, 23 Feb 2009

This review is from: The Major Works (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
The Major Works (Oxford World's Classics)One of the best collections of Wordsworth's writing currently available. Contains all the important poems in their original versions and in chronological order, including complete versions of Home at Grasmere and The Prelude, with useful notes and a brief, informative introduction. Also contains the important 1802 preface to the Lyrical Ballads. Wordsworth was a talented and courageous writer as a young man and, given the chance, speaks directly to us today. His views on poetry are remarkably sane and practical, and form a useful corrective to the obscurantism of much postmodern theory. An ideal volume for student and general reader alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wordsworth, The Major Works, 10 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Major Works (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
One of the most extensive collections of Wordsworth's poetry available in the one book...and I looked around quite a bit. Great value for money; a fantastic collection of poems.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Edition, 13 May 2013

This review is from: The Major Works (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
This is a highly comprehensive edition, from one of the most qualified scholars on Wordsworth. It also includes some of his seminal prose texts, such as the Preface to Lyrical Ballads. Of all the Romanticists Wordsworth's body of work is probably the largest, and this edition is well-formatted for anyone pursuing an interest in one of our most accomplished and enlightening poets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed full of fantastic work, 15 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Major Works (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Currently studying for A Level English with this book. Stephan Gill is a world class critic on Wordsworth which is obvious throughout this publication.
I would recommend this publication to anyone interested or studying Wordsworth.
