"John Worthen's engaging new biography of Wordsworth begins by quoting the poet's recollection of himself at around the age of 10, surveying tall trees, black chasms, and dizzy crags: 'I loved to stand and & read j Their looks forbidding', he says, 'read & disobey' (p. 3)... Worthen's book is a revealing account of the consequences of that daring." ( The Review of English Studies , 15 October 2014)Reseña del editor:
