Description

Dorothy Wordsworth (25 December 1771 – 25 January 1855,) sister to William Wordsworth, one of the great poets of the Romantic Era, played a major role in the production of the Lyrical Ballads, the book that inaugurated the Romantic Period. However, she receives little critical attention. Her poetry shows her unique way of perceiving the natural world. Dorothy‘s unique style of writing, keen eye for natural observation, and curious mind make her a poet equal to her brother. My project examines Dorothy Wordsworth; it is my goal to shed a light on her talents and show her for the Lyrical Poet that she was in her own right.
