Author: Andrew Wordsworth (Jesus 1974)
Publisher: Pallas Athene Books
This insightful biography closely studies the great Romantic poet's work to understand more fully his deeply private and often elusive personality, and it observes the artist's life to better grasp the meaning hidden behind the often deceptively immediate verses.
Well-kept Secrets intersperses the narrative exploring Wordsworth’s life with a wealth of poetic verses. This structure clearly shows how Wordsworth’s art was intimately linked to his existence and how it was a means – more or less conscious – to come to terms with the world and with himself. It also enables Andrew Wordsworth to shed some new light on the interpretation of the poetry and to better understand the poet as a man.
Pallas Athene Books is delighted to offer a special discount to fellow-Cambridge-alumni (the two Wordsworths both studied at Cambridge).
