A selection of lectures and papers from the 42nd Wordsworth Summer Conference

This selection of presentations from the Wordsworth Summer Conference opens with Heidi Thomson's fresh new approach to Wordsworth's Salisbury Plain narrative, and closes with Deirdre Coleman investigating the Keats Circle's interest in Indian culture and mythology. Christopher Simons offers an extended treatment of Ecclesiastical Sketches in the context of Wordsworth's career. In other Wordsworth papers, Peter Larkin writes on Wordsworth in the City, Tom Clucas on Wordsworth and Petrarch, Daniel Robinson on an editorial crux in the early Prelude, Rowan Boyson on Wordsworth's 'anosmia', Simon Swift on Wordsworth and Charles le Brun, and Richard Gravil on 'sacred sites' in the poetry, from the Chartreuse to Long Meg. Kimiyo Ogawa writes on Godwin, Hazlittt and disinterestedness; Alexandras Paterson on Shelley and Atmospheric Science, and Richard Lansdown on James Montgomery's electrifying poem, Pelican Island
