Wordsworth's Bardic Vocation, 1787-1842 by Richard Gravil
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From 1787 to 1842, Wordsworth was preoccupied with the themes of loss and death and with "natural piety" in the lives of people and nations. Beginning with his consciousness of the Bards and Druids of Cumbria, this book treats Wordsworth's oeuvre, including the "Gothic" juvenilia, "The Ruined Cottage", "Lyrical Ballads", "Poems in Two Volumes", "The Excursion" and the "Poems" of 1842 as unified by a Bardic vocation, to bind "the living and the dead" and to nurture "the kind".
