33 editions published between 1897 and 1988 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
The journals Dorothy kept at Alfoxden in 1798 and, later, in Grasmere "to please William" are more than a valuable record of their day to day life; an intense and minute observation of nature together with a genuine poetic imagination in prose poetry, a delight in its own right. Her vision and influence can be seen clearly in many of her brother's poems and these are printed in an appendix to the book
Letters of Dorothy Wordsworth : a selection by Dorothy Wordsworth( Book )
20 editions published between 1981 and 1991 in English and Danish and held by 51 libraries worldwide
"I should detest," wrote Dorothy Wordsworth, "the idea of setting myself up as an author." Protesting to Lady Beaumont she explained "I have not the powers which Coleridge thinks I have--I know it." Despite her self-deprecatory words, however, the reader of Dorothy Wordsworth's letters will discover a skill with language and a power of description that rivals even the poetry of her more famous brother. In this selection, Alan G. Hill offers seventy complete letters that together provide a fascinating portrait of the writer and her surroundings. Spontaneous, intimate, and lively, they constitute a life of Dorothy Wordsworth in her own words, following her from youth to the onset of her last tragic illness. In between, we meet a remarkable group of people, for no other observer was so close to Wordsworth, Coleridge, and their circle, shared so completely their feelings and aims, and had such an eye for the landscape that inspired them. To have brought them so vividly before our eyes is surely one of Dorothy Wordsworth's greatest and most enduring achievements
The Grasmere journals by Dorothy Wordsworth( Book )
14 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 42 libraries worldwide
The Grasmere and Alfoxden journals by Dorothy Wordsworth( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Dorothy Wordsworth's journals are a unique record of her life with her brother William, at the time when he was at the height of his poetic powers. Invaluable for the insight they give into the daily life of the poet and his friendship with Coleridge, they are also remarkable for their spontaneity and immediacy, and for the vivid descriptions of people, places, and incidents that inspired some of Wordsworth's best-loved poems. The Grasmere Journal was begun at Dove Cottage in May 1800 and kept for three years. Dorothy notes the walks and the weather, the friends, country neighbors and beggars on the roads; she sets down accounts of the garden, of Wordsworth's marriage, their concern for Coleridge, the composition of poetry. The earlier Alfoxden Journal was written during 1797-8, when the Wordsworths lived near Coleridge in Somerset. Not intended for publication, but to "give Wm Pleasure by it," both journals have a quality recognized by Wordsworth when he wrote of Dorothy that "she gave me eyes, she gave me ears."--Publisher
