Wordsworth's Counterrevolutionary Turn: Community, Virtue, and Vision in the 1790s

Cover
University of Delaware Press, 1997 - 273 Seiten
This book engages a controversy over the relationship between Wordsworth's poetry and his politics, dating back to the early reviews of the Lyrical Ballads. Rieder argues that Wordsworth's poetry achieves its power by projecting a fantasy of community that finds its material counterpart far more in the literature itself than in the rural occupations or natural scenes Wordsworth depicts. Also argued throughout is that Wordsworth's originality springs from his invention and elaboration of a peculiarly literary form of community.

Seite 17 - In spite of difference of soil and climate, of language and manners, of laws and customs: in spite of things silently gone out of mind, and things violently destroyed; the Poet binds together by passion and knowledge the vast empire of human society, as it is spread over the whole earth, and over all time.
