Books Info:

Wordsworth in American Literary Culture free pdf It is hard to deny the enormous impact of Wordsworth's writing upon the literary and cultural world that followed him. This new collection of specially-commissioned essays provides the most complete picture yet to be produced of the influence of William Wordsworth's writing upon major American writers of the nineteenth century, such as Thoreau, Fuller, Whitman, Melville, Dickinson and others. In addition to providing a thorough account of Wordsworth's influence on American literature, this collection also seeks to address the poet's influence on American culture, from religious reform to civic humanism, and in so doing hints at a new theory of transatlantic influence that accounts for transnational literary as well as cultural exchange. Contributors include James Butler, Elizabeth Fay, Stephen Gill, Susan Manning and Adam Potkay, amongst others.
