About the BookThis is perhaps the most comprehensive book on Wordsworth, highlighting discussions on most of the different dimensions of the poet—as a critic, a poetic theorist, a great lover of nature, a humanist, and as a philosopher. In this book, twelve most important poems of the poet, his five ‘Lucy' poems and also his six sonnets have been thoroughly discussed, and the texts of all the 23 poems have been given. In the three Appendices, the texts of Wordsworth’s three most important literary essays—Preface to Lyrical Ballads (1802), Appendix on Poetic Diction, and Essay Supplementary to the Preface—have been given for the reader’s ready references. The author has shunned all pedantry anywhere in the book, his primary objective being introduction of Wordsworth to the generality of readers. References have always been cited wherever quotations from critics’ books have been appropriated.About the Author/sSunil Kumar Sarker holds Ph.D. in both English and philosophy, and is a Reader in Raiganj (University) College.
