5.0 out of 5 stars Medicine for a troubled age April 3, 2002
Format:Leather Bound
Despite his status of 'whipping boy'with much of the academic community - the 'icon' to be smashed - Wordsworth's literary merits endure. Or rather - his power to inspire, endures. Wordsworth made an important diction - between the public and the people. The pseudo-sophisticated wish to pander to fashionable modes of literary criticism; they will try to convince you that Wordsworth's poetry is passe, the 'tin god' of gemutlich Victorian dreams. Meanwhile, the 'people' still read W, and they always will - especially those who turn to the bosom of nature to nourish the spirit. J.S. Mill cured himself of chronic melancholia after opening himself to Wordsworth's work -the prospect (or 'project') - it endeavours to lead us toward. This text is De Selincourt's judicious editorial work. Otherwise expensive, this p/back version is worth buying.Be warned tho', Wordsworth did not live to see 'The Prelude' published.For that, Stephen Gill's ed is much to be recommnded.
