9780199696390: William and Dorothy Wordsworth: 'All in each other'
Críticas:

Newlyns William and Dorothy Wordsworth: All in Each Other undertakes to deliver a comprehensive account of how Dorothy and William Wordsworths lives and writings were inextricably and reciprocally linked ... In sum, Newlyns very readable, beautifully illustrated book offers a wealth of details and insights into the extent and intensity of the Wordsworths creative life together. Its material is expounded in a way that primarily aims at an audience beyond academia, addressing the community of Wordsworth readers and lovers of the Lake district, who flock in thousands every year to visit its monuments. ( Helga Schwalm, The BARS Review)

The notes to the chapters are comprehensive, as is the bibliography but it is the authors knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, English Romantic Literature that makes this book a pleasure to read, and inspires the reader to look at the writings of William and Dorothy with a fresh eye. ( Gill Stables, Conserving Lakeland)

Newlyn brings formidable academic resources to her task ... [She] has an extensive scholarly knowledge of William and Dorothy's manuscripts and published texts. ( Nicolas Roe, The Times Literary Suppliment)

Unquestionably one of the best books about literature that I've ever read. ( Priscilla Gilman, author of The Anti-Romantic Child)

In its flowing, and, at times, conversational prose, Newlyn's book is both accessible and enjoyable. Moreover, in her acknowledgement of a deeply personal connection to the writing of this book, Newlyn shows it to have an almost universal appeal. ( Bryn Jones Square, The Oxonian Review)

Newlyn's is an affectionate and moving account of a remarkable bond unbroken. ( Times Higher Education)

One of the book's most admirable elements is how Newlyn gives equal weight to her subjects' writings... This unparalleled examination of the Wordsworth siblings makes this title an essential addition to English literature collections. ( Library Journal)

[I]t is beautifully written and contains everything an enthusiast of either or both Wordsworths would wish to know about their lives and work; beginners and more advanced readers alike will prosper by it. Would that it had been available to me when I first began to read Wordsworth. ( Duncan Wu, Literary Review)

Nobody interested in the Wordsworths should fail to read the book. ( Allan Massie, Sunday Telegraph)

Newlyn offers a valuable corrective to existing Wordsworth criticism and a moving testimonial to the power of creativity and community. ( Publishers Weekly)

This is an immensely valuable book. ( Oxford Times)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 232 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. William Wordsworth s creative collaboration with his beloved Sister spanned nearly fifty years, from their first reunion in 1787 until her premature decline in 1835. Rumours of incest have surrounded the siblings since the 19th century, but Lucy Newlyn sees their cohabitation as an expression of deep emotional need, arising from circumstances peculiar to their family history. Born in Cockermouth and parted when Dorothy was six by the death of their mother, the siblings grew up separately and were only reunited four years after their father had died, leaving them destitute. How did their orphaned consciousness shape their understanding of each other? What part did traumatic memories of separation play in their longing for a home? How fully did their re-settlement in the Lake District recompense them for the loss of a shared childhood? Newlyn shows how William and Dorothy s writings - closely intertwined with their regional affiliations - were part of the lifelong work of jointly re-building their family and re-claiming their communal identity. Walking, talking, remembering, and grieving were as important to their companionship as writing; and at every stage of their adult lives they drew nourishment from their immediate surroundings. This is the first book to bring the full range of Dorothy s writings into the foreground alongside her brother s, and to give each sibling the same level of detailed attention. Newlyn explores the symbiotic nature of their creative processes through close reading of journals, letters and poems - sometimes drawing on material that is in manuscript. She uncovers detailed interminglings in their work, approaching these as evidence of their deep affinity. The book offers a spirited rebuttal of the myth that the Romantic writer was a solitary genius , and that William Wordsworth was a poet of the egotistical sublime - arguing instead that he was a poet of community, carrying everywhere with him relationship and love . Dorothy is not presented as an undervalued or exploited member of the Wordsworth household, but as the poet s equal in a literary partnership of outstanding importance. Newlyn s book is deeply researched, drawing on a wide range of recent scholarship - not just in Romantic studies, but in psychology, literary theory, anthropology and life-writing. Yet it is a personal book, written with passion by a scholar-poet and intended to be of some practical use and inspirational value to non-specialist readers. Adopting a holistic approach to mental and spiritual health, human relationships, and the environment, Newlyn provides a timely reminder that creativity thrives best in a gift economy.
