The figure of William Wordsworth looms over the nineteenth century like a presiding genius. Sage, seer, Poet Laureate, he was revered and honoured by his Victorian contemporaries as a writer of tender lyrical poetry, champion of country life and, most of all, the great spirit communing with Nature. Drawing on unpublished sources Juliet Barker presents a new picture of Wordsworth, as both the public icon and private family man. WORDSWORTH is a major biography of one of Britain's most famous poets and a vivid portrait of a fiercely passionate man.
