Summary
Orphaned and dependent on the charity of unsympathetic relatives, Wordsworth became the archetypal teenage rebel. He went to Revolutionary France, where he fathered an illegitimate daughter and became a committed republican. His poetry was as revolutionary as his politics, challenging convention in form, style, and subject, and earning him the contempt of critics. Only the encouragement of a group of supporters, above all Coleridge, kept him true to his poetic vocation. In the half-century that followed, his reputation was transformed. His advocacy of imagination and feeling touched a chord in an increasingly industrial, mechanistic age, and his influence was profoundly felt in every sphere of life. In the last decade of his life, his home became a place of pilgrimage for people who came to pay their respects to his genius. His legacy, as a poet and as the spiritual founder of the conservation movement, remains with us today.--From publisher description
