Five Stars for the poetry, but One Star for. . . 6 mars 2007
Par K. Howe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
this edition.

The Wordsworth Poetry Library offers some decent printings of the works of any number of poets for fantastic prices. These editions may not be of the best quality, but that's okay for most of the books in the collection. However, when it comes to Wordsworth, quality is an issue because of the sheer volume of his poetical works. The WPL edition of the namesake's poetry will fall apart if one attempts to actually read it. There are simply too many pages in this edition for the paperback, perfect-bound book to stay together.

When it comes to Wordsworth, a little probably goes a long way for the casual reader; such may wish to consider the Penguin edition of Selected Poems of William Wordsworth. However, those who truly wish to read (or at least own) every accessible bit of verse by the venerable poet will do well to look around (use bookfinder dot com or eBay) for old hardcover editions under the title Complete Poetical Works of William Wordsworth.

It should be stressed that the casual reader will generally find the WPL editions adequate, especially for the price, and that this volume is only a poor choice because of the amount of pages.

Tables of Contents are for losers 28 mai 2008
Par Griswel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Great poems, the three star rating is for this edition.

Know the name of a Wordsworth poem, have his complete works, want to read the poem? Hah! Loser! Unless you know the first line, or feel like plowing through the index of subjects such as "Poems founded upon the affections" (oh, that narrows the field, thanks tons)(by the way, poems within these lists are not in alphabetical order, either) you are SOL.

There is no table of contents as we would use that term here in the world which speaks English. So, if you like the idea of owning Wordsworth's works, and being able to read things more or less at random, this is the volume for you. If you want to be able to, you know, find things in this 900 page book, good hunting.

We Are Seven is on page 83.

Wordsworth has an extremely fitting last name doesn't he? 17 mai 2005

William Wordsworth is my favorite poet. I wanted a collection of his poetry and I can't imagine a better one than this! It's so complete I don't think I'll ever need another one! I'm totally satisfied.

Great Poems, Incredible Value 2 avril 2010
Par Bill R. Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
William Wordsworth, whose long career stretched from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth, was the most influential English poet since Milton or even since Chaucer. He virtually invented Romanticism, exerting a profound influence on fellow English poets as well as succeeding generations, launching a movement that spread throughout the world. Wordsworth is of course most famously the Poet of Nature; Romanticism's nature love began with him, and he wrote many of the most famous and best nature poems of all-time. However, he also wrought a wealth of other innovations, namely drastically changing Enlightenment poetry's grand neo-classical diction to more closely mirror natural speech. He helped make ballads and other simple traditional modes accepted as serious poetry but mastered a variety of forms, focusing particularly on sonnets and blank verse. Anyone even remotely interested in English poetry must be familiar with at least his most famous works.

There are many Wordsworth collections, but this is the best for anyone wanting a comprehensive, easily available, and inexpensive one. It has every authorized poem in the format set out in the last compilation Wordsworth published, beginning chronologically but soon categorizing by subject. Also here are The Prelude and The Excursion, his two epic works, which are usually published separately or only excerpted. Finally, there are several supplements: the original versions of two early poems that were drastically changed, several uncollected poems, and a few that Wordsworth did not publish. To have all this in one volume is simply incredible; Wordsworth's collected poems usually stretch over several volumes, and the two epics are often separate books. When one takes the price into account, the value is near-unbelievable.

However, this is not for everyone. Like all books in this series, it is a value edition. There is thus only a very short Introduction, an even shorter Bibliography, and almost no notes. Most will think these small losses, especially as Wordsworth always strived for clarity and made few literary allusions; some biographical and historical references will be lost on many, but this does not preclude understanding or enjoyment as with many writers. Anyone needing a scholarly edition must certainly look elsewhere, especially as this does not have multiple versions of major poems as some books do; it also lacks certain unpublished or unfinished ones and, more distressing for casuals, Wordsworth's famous Lyrical Ballads Preface. A more substantial issue is the extremely small print; this is of course inevitable in order to fit so much in one volume, but the smallness is such that many will be unable to read. Anyone who has a problem with such things should definitely check out the type before buying. Also annoying is the absence of an alphabetical title index; there is a table of contents and first line index, but this is often inadequate in a nine hundred page book with hundreds of poems. However, these complaints are very small - nay, almost negligible - considering the convenience and price.

A more fundamental issue is that many, even true fans, will not want a complete edition. Wordsworth became a full-time poet in his late 20s and was prolific well into his 70s, but even his greatest admirers agree that nearly all his major work was written by the time he was forty-four. Having read nearly all his best writing before, I approached the remainder almost with dread; even this Preface warns of it. However, I was very pleasantly surprised to find the later work not nearly as bad as everyone says, though certainly below his work up to 1814. The lesser work presents two main obstacles. First, Wordsworth gradually moved away from the self-conscious simplicity that was essential to his great early work and that he himself touted, though he sometimes returned to it. This simplicity has always had critics, and those turned off by it may even be glad for the change, though undeniable quality difference elsewhere makes it unlikely. Second, and more important to most, is that Wordsworth became ever more politically and religiously conservative, and his writings reflect this. As a young man he was greatly influenced by the republican ideas of the early French Revolution and wrote numerous liberal poems. Afterward, though never a curmudgeon, his conservatism became more and more crusty to the point where he wrote a sonnet series supporting capital punishment and a poem condemning illustrated books and newspapers. Thomas Hardy, who saw Wordsworth's work more objectively than nearly anyone, said that poetry should convey impressions, not convictions and that Wordsworth forgot this as he aged. Many will agree. Everyone from Byron to Browning wrote poems lamenting or attacking the conservative turn; even Matthew Arnold, a true admirer, slighted the infamous Ecclesiastical Sonnets. The early work is also not entirely great; the much-maligned Peter Bell, nothing less than an embarrassment, remains one of the worst works from a major poet. All this means that, though true fans and scholars will of course want all the poems, casuals will be better off with a Selected Poems.

In the end, though most readers will likely be better served by other editions, this is perfect for certain ones - not something for all but all for some.
