"Richard Gravil explores the relationship between works of the "American Renaissance," in particular the works of the Transcendentalists, and British Romanticism, emphasizing the significance of the American revolution to British writers and the role of Fenimore Cooper in the foundation of American literature. He focuses on the reception of Wordsworth and Coleridge by Emerson and Thoreau, Melville's reading of Coleridge and Whitman's transfiguration of Wordsworth, the response of Hawthorne and Poe to Wordsworth, Coleridge and Keats, and the exceptional intertextuality of Emily Dickinson."--BOOK JACKET

Wordsworth's Bardic vocation, 1787-1842 by Richard Gravil( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
"Exploring his lifelong fascination with the Druids and the Bards of Cumbria, Part 1 associates Wordsworth's druid reveries in The Prelude, The Vale of Esthwaite (1797) and An Evening Walk, with his mature historical vision in the Guide to the Lakes, and Ecclesiastical Sonnets. 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
