In Adam Sisman's previous book, the award-winning Boswell's Presumptuous Task, he inventively recounted the making of the most distinguished biography in the English language, James Boswell's Life of Johnson. Now, with The Friendship, Sisman details the relationship of two of the most important Romantic poets, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The first modern biography to consider them together, The Friendship is a wonderfully readable account that evokes these two extraordinary personalities and situates them in their time, exploring the influence each writer had on the other, as well as providing glimpses of the creative process itself.
