This magnificent edition of The Poems of William Wordsworth presents Wordsworth's verse in reading texts chosen from those offered in the twenty-one volumes of the Cornell Wordsworth. The edition is also available in three handsome paperbacks which have no rival as the most enjoyable way to read a truly Collected Wordsworth in the latest scholarly texts.
The 78-page Sample Ebook is identical for all three voumes and includes the 'Ode: Intimations of Immortality', 300 lines from the 1805 Prelude, and some late sonnets, together with the 43-page Complete Index to all three volumes. In PDF and paperback only.
Here is the poetry in the form the poet gave it when first completed, either in its manuscript state or in a published book. Each volume includes Wordsworth's own notes published with his poems during his lifetime and a few editorial explanations where appropriate.
In the third volume are the shorter poems composed between 1807 and 1820, the fourteen-book Prelude, all eight sonnet series, including The River Duddon, Ecclesiastical Sketches. Yarrow Revisited, and Other Poems, poems from Scotland and Italy in 1833 and 1837, and Last Poems: 1821 - 1850.
In many ways this is the most rewarding volume of the Poems, revealing the forgotten variety of Wordsworth's later work alongside the full text of the 1850 Prelude.
