Wordsworth and Coleridge: the radical years

Portada
Clarendon Press, 1988 - 306 páginas
Drawing on numerous previously unpublished manuscript sources, this study reappraises Wordsworth's and Coleridge's radical careers in the years before their emergence as major poets. By tracing parallel experiences of political defeat in the lives of their contemporaries, Nicholas Roe argues against any generalized pattern of withdrawal from politics. Instead, Roe offers a reading ofLyrical Ballads,The Prelude, andThe Recluseemphasizing the integration of the imaginative life and radical experience. As he demonstrates, the loss of revolutionary idealism prefigured the collapse of Coleridge's creative and personal life after 1798, while for Wordsworth revolutionary failure was the key to his emergence as a poet.
