The Poems of William Wordsworth, Vol. 1 of 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Poems of William Wordsworth, Vol. 1 of 3The activity of the modern book-market is so great that no apology seems to be necessary for adding one to the large number of editions Wordsworth already in existence. A short explanation of the scope of the present edition is, however, desirable. It is, as far as I know, the first complete edition of the poetry which has attempted to supply, within moderate compass, answers to such questions as the text may naturally raise in the reader's mind. The other modern English editions, apart from mere reprints, are those of Professor William Knight, of Professor Dowden, and of Mr. Hutchinson. Students of Wordsworth must always acknowledge the abundance of material which Professor Knight collected for the elucidation of Wordsworth's life and thought, the history of his text, the topography of his poems and their allusions, and I for my part am cordially grateful to him for the kind words with which he gave me permission, so far as it rested with. him, to make use of matter published for the first time by himself; and my notes will show how far I am indebted to his editorial labours, as well as to the Life which fills vols. ix., x., xi. of his Edinburgh edition. The distinctive feature of his edition, which should have made it final for textual purposes, was the exhibition, on the same page as the text, of all the various readings adopted by Wordsworth in the many editions of his own lifetime - not to mention a large number, rescued from MS., which never saw the light.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
