A chronological biograpaphy of this wonderful wordsmith of verse in the very readable style of the inimicable Hunter Davies.Each of the twenty-one chapters of this delightfully compact book of three-hundred and fifty pages concludes with a poem or extract ,giving the general reader a comprehensive flavour of the poetry of this 'master' genius of early English nineteenth century verse.Great value and deserving of a historical costume TV adapation.

I wanted a biography that was not too bulky or academic, and Davies' met my requirements perfectly. Informed, fluent, accurate, not pedantic.

This was a very good read. I was surprised at how eventful and interesting his life had been. I had a preconception of WW as a bit fey, whereas he did things that many men today would consider too daunting. People who are not into poetry would still enjoy this book and yet learn a little about his poetry. I liked the way that the author placed a poem, or part of one, at the end of each chapter.
