Wordsworth: A Poet's History free pdf This work examines the range of Wordsworth's poetry and criticism over the course of his career. It examines the writer and his works against the backdrop of revolutionary history, public and personal, as well as political. The study foregrounds the ways in which Wordsworth's account of "self representation in poetic language" coils around and recoils from the linguistic traumas excited by the French Revolution. The book also examines Wordsworth's patriotism and the evolution of this as demonstrated in his poetry.
