This compilation presents the four major political texts in Wordsworth's prose oeuvre and illustrates both the detail of the poet's political grasp, and the remarkable swerves he made between 1793 and 1835.
The book contains the Jacobinical A Letter to the Bishop of Llandaff (1793); the liberal internationalist Concerning the Convention of Cintra (1809); the thoroughly Tory Two Addresses to the Freeholders of Westmorland (1818); and the social welfare Postscript to his 1835 volume, The River Duddon. The texts are drawn from the three-volume Prose Works of William Wordsworth, edited by W. J. B. Owen and Jane Worthington Smyser. The editors' general introductions and commentary are retained (the commentary converted into footnotes, where the information is of most immediate value), but in the interest of an affordable and attractive reading text, the textual introductions and manuscript notes are omitted.
