Wordsworth and Coleridge: The Making of the Major Lyrics, 1802-1804
This work is an intensive exploration of six early texts of three icons of Engilsh-speaking culture: William Wordsworth's "Ode: Intimations on Immoratlity from Recollections of Early Childhood" and "Resolution and Independence," and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "Dejection: An Ode." Almost two centuries of cultural codification ave firmly established these poems as canonical works necessary for an understanding of their authors, of their age and of poetry.
