"We see the embryo but not the complete birth, and it is thoroughly useful to have this version in readable form. Reprinted after the text are four useful modern critical essays; the ′analogy passage′ which appears in MS W after Snowdon but not in Dr Wu′s or any other editorial text; then, most useful, a schedule indicating the precise sources of Dr Wu′s text; a very full index." S. J. Harrison, Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
From the Author
What this book is all about
The Five-Book Prelude was first discovered as long ago as 1977, but no one thought to edit it for another twenty years. This is the only text in print, and reveals the poem to have been a most extraordinary one. This edition comes with essays by distinguished critics such as Kenneth R. Johnston, Mary Jacobus, and Jonathan Wordsworth. There is also an appendix containing a discarded passage rescued from manuscript. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
