This is a really lovely quality, nicely bound, good print of Wordsworth's works, and will be accompanying me in my handbag on many tedious journeys. It's a joy to discover an edition of such quality that is both neatly sized and beautifully presented.

HASH(0x95125444) out of 5 stars Natural piety 11 July 2006
By Shalom Freedman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This selection is divided into four sections: The Poets Life, Memorial Poems, Sonnets, Narrative Poems. It contains many of the greatest and most memorable lyrics of Wordsworth. It is a fine introduction to his work.

Wordsworth is a poet whose connection with the natural world was cardinal to his poetry. One can feel often in his perception of the outdoor world, a soul enhanced by the very act of seeing. Much of this seeing was done in walking. And his famous definition of poetry as ' the overflow of powerful emotion recollected in tranquillity' hints that that powerful emotion came often through seeing and being in the natural world.
