Dorothy Wordsworth's Illustrated Lakeland Journals

£7.99

Product description

In December 1799, Dorothy Wordsworth, then aged 27, and her brother, William, a year and a half older, moved to Dove Cottage, Grasmere in the English Lakeland. The following year, Dorothy began a personal journal which she kept until January 1803. She had no thought of it ever being published, but since it first appeared in 1897 it has established her reputation as one of the most remarkable and distinguished writers about life in the English countryside.

The Wordsworths, like the Colridges, the Brontes and the Tennysons, were among those remarkable nineteenth-century families of the professional middle-class (more especially of the Church), who in this period to some extent usurped the place of the aristocratic dynasties of earlier times in their influence on society.

Beautifully illustrated with portraits and sketches this complete edition the beauty of the English Lakelands.
