Books Info:

The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth free pdf The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth deploys its forty-eight original essays, by an international team of scholar-critics, to present a stimulating account of Wordsworth's life and achievement and to map new directions in criticism. Nineteen essays explore the highlights of a long career systematically, giving special prominence to the lyric Wordsworth of Lyrical Ballads and the Poems in Two Volumes and to the blank verse poet of 'The Recluse'. Most of the other essays return to the poetry while exploring other dimensions of the life and work of the major Romantic poet. The result is a dialogic exploration of many major texts and problems in Wordsworth scholarship. This uniquely comprehensive handbook is structured so as to present, in turn, Wordsworth's life, career, and networks- aspects of the major lyrical and narrative poetry- components of 'The Recluse'- his poetical inheritance and his transformation of poetics- the variety of intellectual influences upon his work, from classical republican thought to modern science- his shaping of modern culture in such fields as gender, landscape, psychology, ethics, politics, religion and ecology- and his 19th- and 20th-century reception-most importantly by poets, but also in modern criticism and scholarship.
