Summary
"In this Group Biography of the women in the lives of poets William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey, Kathleen Jones takes us into the kitchens, sickrooms, and eventually the madwoman's attics of these major Romantic households. The images of the familiar rustic idyll of Romantic poetry depends upon the bracing way these women bore the brunt of domestic realities. Behind the scenes of Romantic poetry there are the real-life tales of false teeth, opium, illness, and dementia. The letters and journals of the women of the Wordsworth circle from the basis for an illuminating new account of their interconnected lives - their passionate attachments, jealousies, the deaths of children, the realities of chronic ill health. They also contribute to a fuller understanding of Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Southey as all-too-fallible human beings."--Jacket
