    DescriptionImpossible to summarize, this book displays the play of intelligence around a variety of subjects literary, scientific, technological, and political. The year 1798 saw the publication of Wordsworth and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads . Gifford looks back at this "farther shore" and the "near shore" of the late 20th century, with a view toward understanding the transformations and the constants in human perception. Not indexed, but this is a book for reading rather than research. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
