Description

Born in the Lake District and having spent much of his life there, Wordsworth -- together with his compatriots Robert Southey and Samuel Taylor Coleridge -- would become known as the Lake Poets, with much of their work being inspired by the area's landscapes and people. Within this volume, Wordsworth presents a fantastic travellers' guide to the Lake District, which he originally wrote during a time of fiscal need. "A Guide Through the District of the Lakes in the North of England" is a fantastic volume that will appeal equally to lovers of English poetry and geography alike. William Wordsworth (1770-1850) was an English Romantic poet famous for helping to usher in the Romantic Age in English literature with the publication of "Lyrical Ballads" (1798), which he co-wrote with Samuel Taylor Coleridge. His best known work is perhaps "The Prelude", a semi-autobiographical poem from his early years which was changed and expanded many times throughout his life. Wordsworth was poet laureate of Britain between 1843 until his death in 1850. Other notable works by this author include: "The Tables Turned", "The Thorn", and "Lines Composed A Few Miles above Tintern Abbey". Contents include: "View of the Country as Formed but it's Inhabitants", "Changes, and Rules of Taste for Preventing their Bad Effects", "Miscellaneous Observations", "Excursions to the Top of Scawffel and on the Banks of Ulswater", and "Ode. The Pass of Kirkstone". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a description of the scenery, for the use of tourists and residents.
