Overview

Wordsworth's Reading 1800-1815 lists all of the authors and books known to have been read by William Wordsworth during the years that saw the composition of much of his greatest poetry. It incorporates hitherto unpublished research into the poet's intellectual development and a thorough survey of manuscript materials. Together with Duncan Wu's companion-volume, Wordsworth's Reading 1770-1799, this is the most complete study of Wordsworth's reading to date, and will be an essential reference tool for all scholars and students of Wordsworth's work.
