The Prelude William Wordsworth

The first fully illustrated edition of William Wordsworth’s (1770-1850) ‘The Prelude’, newly edited from manuscripts held by The Wordsworth Trust. Originally published in 1850, the autobiographical poem is considered one of the most resonant of the entire Romantic Era. It recounts Wordsworth's childhood, days at Cambridge, residence in London, walking tour of the Alps, his witnessing of the French Revolution, turmoil over the apparent failure of its revolutionary ideals, and the ultimate restoration of imaginative power. Spiritual and inward, yet anchored in particulars of landscape and historical events. More than 130 full colour paintings and drawings illustrate its events, people, and settings, including works by Turner, Gainsborough, Blake, Canaletto, and David. Marginal glosses guide the reader and elucidate references and language. Hardback, 281 pages, 133 colour illustrations.
12 ¼” x 9 ¾”.
