William Wordsworth: The Prelude, 1805

Edited from the Manuscripts and Illustrated, with an Introduction, Maps, Notes, Glosses, and Chronology

Here, newly edited from manuscripts held by The Wordsworth Trust, is an entirely new edition of The Prelude, the most resonant poem of the entire Romantic Era. Over the last 150 years this poetic autobiography has emerged as one of the most admired works in all of English literature and certainly as the pre-eminent long poem expressing a personal romantic spirit. It tells the story of the growth of imagination and love in the mind of one of the finest poets
of the last 250 years. It recounts Wordsworth's childhood and youth, his days at Cambridge,
residence in London, walking tour of the Alps, his witnessing of the French Revolution, crisis and turmoil over the apparent failure of its revolutionary ideals, and the ultimate restoration of imaginative power. The poem is spiritual and inward, yet anchored in particulars of landscape and events of history. Marginal glosses, a unique feature of this edition, guide the reader through the design and flow of the poem. Succinct notes elucidate references and language needed for a full
understanding. Also provided are a fresh critical Introduction, detailed and helpful Chronology, Bibliography, and specially commissioned color Maps. Wordsworth addressed his poem to Samuel Taylor Coleridge and read it aloud to him. Coleridge's poetic response, To William Wordsworth, is also included.
This is the first fully illustrated edition of The Prelude. More than 130 paintings, drawings, and works of art, all in full colour, illustrate its events, people, and settings in the English Lake District, Cambridge, London, Paris, the Alps, and Wales. There are works by Turner, Gainsborough, Constable, Blake, Canaletto, David, Millet, and many others. Almost all were created at or near the time that Wordsworth composed the poem, and we know he even saw a number of them
personally.

Portrait

James Engell is Gurney Professor of English and Professor of Comparative Literature at Harvard University, where he chaired the Department of English for six years. He is author of four books and more than forty articles and book chapters treating eighteenth-century and romantic literature, as well as the present state of higher education in America. He has contributed to and edited eight additional volumes, including Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Biographia Literaria (with W. Jackson Bate) and Environment: An Interdisciplinary Anthology (with three co-editors). A recipient of national academic awards and university teaching prizes, he was named a Senior Fellow at the National Humanities Center and elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.; Michael D. Raymond has studied the poetry of William Wordsworth for decades--a catalyst for his own life-long search for deeply rooted, private places of remembrance. After earning a B.A. in English from Yale, he received his M.A. from Harvard with a thesis entitled Wordsworth on Salisbury Plain: Noetic Insights, Natural Mysticism, and the Absence of Ideology. Fordham conferred his doctoral degree. His dissertation is John Wordsworth on Snowdon: The Elegiac Sublime and the Spectacle of Woe. He has travelled with a particular passion to walk the paths and routes described in The Prelude, from Cockermouth and Grasmere to London, Paris, the Alps, and the northern Italian lakes, including Como and Maggiore. For four decades president of his own financial service, Raymond Wealth Advisors, he lives with his wife in North Haven, Connecticut, near their three children and four grandchildren.
