A new biography of William Wordsworth by his descendant Andrew Wordsworth

  • Well Kept Secrets Cover

Andrew Wordsworth, a full-time sculptor who after graduating in English from Cambridge has devoted his life to exploring his ancestor’s work, writes a new study of Wordsworth’s life, Well-kept Secrets: The Story of William Wordsworth (Pallas Athene Books, out on 7th April 2020).

This insightful biography studies the poetry to understand more fully Wordsworth’s deeply private, contradictory and often enigmatic personality, and, conversely, it observes the artist’s life to better grasp the meaning hidden behind the often deceptively immediate verses.

“At once intimate and learned, this is a compelling reassessment of Wordsworth’s life and work.” – Nicholas Shakespeare
