Summary:
Informed by a knowledge of political thought and by close attention to poetic texture, Disowned by Memory is above all a study of moral psychology. The idea of personal consciousness which we now take for granted, yet which has been vital to the development of modern poetry, had much of its real beginning in Wordsworth. More than any other work of criticism, this book tells how that discovery occurred.
