Description

Over the course of his long life Wordsworth revised and altered his early works considerably, and readers today are often familiar only with these last revised versions. This edition is particulary important in that it presents the poems in order of composition and in a textual form as near as possible to their earliest completed state. This is invaluable for those interested in tracing the development of Wordsworth's art, and also gives the modern reader the opportunity to share something of the experience of Wordsworth's contemporaries such as Keats, Shelley, Hazlitt, and Lamb who would have read the poems when they were first completed.show more
