Parts 2 and 3 examine the poet's politically engaged 'defence of the people' in Salisbury Plain, The Ruined Cottage and Lyrical Ballads; his exploration of mortality in the elegies for Lucy and the Elysian poems of encounter; and his reconfiguring of minstrelsy and manliness in poems from Hart-Leap Well to The White Doe of Rylstone. Finally, Part 4 explores the dialogic quality of The Excursion, the ideology of the political sonnets, The Convention of Cintra and the Waterloo odes, and the historical moment of Poems Chiefly of Early and Late Years (1842)."--Jacket." ;
