William and Dorothy Wordsworth

'All in each other'

Lucy Newlyn

  • The first literary biography of the Wordsworths' creative collaboration
  • Based on poems, letters, journals, memoirs, and biographies
  • Brings the full range of Dorothy Wordsworth's writings into the foreground alongside her brother's work for the first time
  • Draws on a wide range of recent scholarship — not just in Wordsworth studies, but in psychology, literary theory, anthropology, and life-writing
  • Offers careful comparative analysis of Dorothy Wordsworth's journals and William Wordsworth's poems, tracing common themes and preoccupations, recurring motifs, and shared patterns of recollection
