A compelling insight into the day-to-day life with William Wordsworth at the height of his poetry career
Begun in May 1800, William Wordsworth’s sister, Dorothy, only resolved to writer her journals for a short time. She continued for nearly three years. Perhaps one of the best-loved of all journals, The Grasmere Journals bring Dove Cottage, where Dorothy stayed with her brother and his friend Coleridge, to vivid and intimate life. Dorothy notes the walks and weather, the friends, country neighbors, and travelers on the roads with intimacy and immediacy. She sets down accounts of the garden, of Wordsworth's marriage, and even insight into the composition of Wordsworth's poetry.
Readings of some of Wordsworth's poems form the last part of this recording.
