Edited now for the first time by Duncan Wu, it provides students and general readers alike with an approachable introduction to Wordsworth's greatest work.
"We see the embryo but not the complete birth, and it is thoroughly useful to have this version in readable form. Reprinted after the text are four useful modern critical essays; the 'analogy passage' which appears in MS W after Snowdon but not in Dr Wu's or any other editorial text; then, most useful, a schedule indicating the precise sources of Dr Wu's text; a very full index." S. J. Harrison, Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
