Originally published in 1948, this book provides a discussion of Wordsworth's perspective on nature, taking into account his position as the only poetic figure 'in whom it is possible to study the transition from Romantic into Victorian'. This transition, both in social and literary terms, is presented as being of fundamental importance to gaining an understanding of the Victorian age. The text incorporates detailed analysis of The Prelude and Lyrical Ballads, together with other areas of Wordsworth's oeuvre. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Wordsworth, Romanticism and the beginnings of the Victorian age.
