About this book

By looking at the later Wordsworth's ekphrastic writings about visual art and his increased awareness of the printed dimension of his work, Simonsen calls attention to what is uniquely exciting about this neglected body of work, and argues that it complicates traditional understandings of Wordsworth based on his so-called Great Decade.

Reviews

'Through sustained passages of subtle and often illuminating close textual reading, the visual and material nature of the later Wordsworth's ekphrastic and inscriptional poetry is disclosed.' - Francesca Cauchi, Philosophy Quarterly
