About the Book

Like her more famous brother William, Dorothy Wordsworth was also an important writer. Yet her work has found a wide readership only in recent years. Appearing in 1987, the first edition of this book was the first full-length scholarly study of the author and was also the first to collect her poems, discovered at Dove cottage and in other libraries. This new edition adds critical readings based on the latest research into Wordsworth’s life and work and will further the argument for her place among the important writers of Romanticism.
