The Grasmere Journal

Dorothy Wordsworth
Illustrated by Georgie Bennett
Introduced by Lucy Newlyn

An exquisite edition of Dorothy Wordsworth's journal, famous for its nature writing and invaluable insight into the lives of the Romantic poets.

The Grasmere Journal (here in the edition edited by Ernest de Sélincourt) reveals not just the vital role Dorothy played in the composition of brother William’s poetry but also the inner emotional life of a woman whose complex bond with her brother remains the subject of great speculation. Lucy Newlyn, Professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University, has written an introduction that examines the importance of this unusual document, and Georgie Bennett has provided a series of beautiful ink and watercolour sketches.
