This volume prints more than letters, most of them previously unpublished, which appeared too late for inclusion in the second edition of The Letters of 1785-1797 book and Dorothy Wordsworth : they are indispensable for understanding the poet and the inner dynamics of the Wordsworth circle. As is the case with all volumes in the Cornell Wordsworth, this book also presents photographic reproductions and transcriptions of the most important or complex manuscripts. Hill, 4 vols. WCh F.

I doubt few of The Cornell Early poems and fragments Series planners envisioned one of their editors some day grappling with the elder poet's last poems, since it was the work of the early, more radical Wordsworth that the series was intended to restore. Even if it requires two or three bookmarks as one works back and forth among these three sections to explore a given text in all its dimensions, this format is indeed very usable, and it emphasizes still further the "text-centered" focus of their edition. London: Hogarth Press, — Owen said of the latter "first" volume that the various materials it collects did "not seem likely to enhance Wordsworth's reputation as a poet. James Strachey et al. It also allows them to sidestep some of the speculation about the dating of draft materials, though they do not hesitate--fortunately--to speculate about specific dating problems.

This nineteenth volume of the Cornell Wordsworth, then, is important in itself, and makes an Early poems and fragments contribution the series. For this initial volume of CPPBS, however, consultation of the manuscript notebooks is less important than it will be in later volumes. Seller Inventory APC After all, included among these Last Poems are the poet's skilled and frequently moving epitaphic and eulogistic writings: "Elegiac Stanzas, " for Mrs. Among the most successful poems in the volume are the many elegies, memorials, and epitaphs responsive to the passing away of Wordsworth's generation, or, even more movingly, of younger members of his household and circle. Yet this volume's very elegance, thoroughness, and persuasiveness about Shelley's clarity of intentions at this early stage may remystify, for the moment, the next stages in the process of the poet's developing greatness.

Now that Donald H. Volume and Issue:. As Wordsworth put it in a canceled paragraph on "The Warning" intended for the Postscript ofsuch poems were "written for one of the best reasons which in a poetical case can be given, viz.

The Julian edition assigns responsibility for the plagiarized poem to Elizabeth's "copying," 1785-1797 book excusing her Early poems and fragments girlish naivete and excusing Percy for trusting her I. Reiman and Fraistat suggest that the plagiarism is deliberate and that the "original" in the title is conscious taunting.

Critics of the series, especially those who find fault with what Jack Stillinger called in a 1785-1797 book the "textual primitivism" of its editorial principles, will no doubt find irony in the application to "Last Poems" of editorial principles that preclude printing final versions and that originally were adopted to strip the influence of "late Wordsworth" from the reading texts of earlier work.

Ex The Excursionintrod. This nineteenth volume of the Cornell Wordsworth, then, is important in itself, and makes an outstanding contribution the series.

WCh F. Last Poems thus presents only "a portion of the poet's output during the last three decades of his life" xviiand by no means necessarily the share one likely would gather together to represent the finest of his late writings--although this edition certainly contains several of the best poems of these years.

This controversial inaugural aim is all but irrelevant to the final stage of Wordsworth's poetry. The Wordsworth who emerges from a reading of these texts in this order is a more complex, artistically vigorous, and in some ways more sympathetic figure than he has often been taken to be.

It then tests these principles on six groupings of Shelley's earliest published or otherwise circulated poems. Reiman and Fraistat suggest that Shelley's disillusioning visit to Southey in December prompted this imitation of "The Devil's Thoughts," not to correct the earlier text but to correct its apostate authors.

In contrast to William Michael Rossetti's "adoption of aesthetic solutions to textual cruxes" 1785-1797 bookthey follow Forman's "conservative scholarly method of correcting the corrupted texts by comparing them with primary editions" and 1785-1797 book as many PBS and MWS manuscripts as he was able to locate or obtain access to.

To follow the late Wordsworth at work on these last poems is also to learn a great deal about his work as a reviser of earlier work and thus about the whole of Wordsworth's poetic corpus.

On the Early poems and fragments of spelling, diction, and subject matter, especially attitudes toward religion, they conclude that Elizabeth Shelley most probably wrote five poems for the collection and Percy Shelley the rest, with the exception of "St.

A "private love-lyric" written to Harriet Grove in copied into a letter to his family's music-master Edward Fergus Grahame, and then fused with another draft of love-lyric--appears in the novel as a song the heroine sings Early poems and fragments charm bandits in a ruined castle.

The editors present a plausible new organization of the Vale of Esthwaite materials, an improved sequential versions of the two dirges written at Cambridge, and a substantially enlarged text of the Wordsworth-Wrangham "Imitation of Juvenal. In several poems—for example Early poems and fragments Sun, that seemed so mildly to retire" "Evening Voluntaries," VI and "By the Banks of a Rocky Stream" the last poem added to Poetical Works —Wordsworth seems to toggle back and forth in revisions between first-person petitions or expressions of faith and second- or third-person treatments of prayer, a toggling that suggests that the relation of prayer and poetry was very much an open question with him right to the end.

Has Man, in wisdom's creed. This musical ode is a fitting, if staid, end to the comprehensive Cornell Wordsworth series, for it addresses, Curtis observes, the same basic theme of education treated in the poet's very first public poem, his celebratory lines for the bicentenary of Hawkshead School, which nearly leads off Landon and Curtis's edition of Early Poems and Fragments.

Benn, Ltd. Although convincing, most of this argument seems more of a critical than a textual argument, though an argument that gains plausibility given Medwin's textual unreliability in other cases. Seller Inventory APC All readers who explore the volume will find something, indeed much, to appreciate, not least from what the editors have accomplished in this latest installment of Cornell's ambitious enterprise.

At times, as in the earlier version of "By the Banks of a Rocky Stream," one sees a glimpse of what Wordsworth could have done to enliven contemporary religious discourse with a dose of simple, unassuming, and tonally self-effacing prayer: Grant me, o blessed Lord a mind In which my thoughts may have a quiet home Thoughts which now fret like balls of foam That in a whirlpool each the other chase Around and round and neither find An outlet nor a resting place.This volume is made up of work from the beginning of Wordsworth's career, when he was a Hawkshead schoolboy, until the end of his time at Racedown in mid Like other volumes in The Cornell Wordsworth series, this book is based on detailed study.
