The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth deploys its forty-seven original essays to present a stimulating account of Wordsworth's life and achievement and to map new directions in criticism. In addition to twenty-two essays wholly on Wordsworth's poetry, other essays return to the poetry while exploring other dimensions of the life and work of the major Romantic poet. The result is a dialogic exploration of many major texts and problems in Wordsworth scholarship. This uniquely comprehensive handbook is structured so as to present, in turn, Wordsworth's life, career, and networks; aspects of the major lyrical and narrative poetry; components of 'The Recluse'; his poetical inheritance and his transformation of poetics; the variety of intellectual influences upon his work, from classical republican thought to modern science; his shaping of modern culture in such fields as gender, landscape, psychology, ethics, politics, religion, and ecology; and his 19th- and 20th-century reception-most importantly by poets, but also in modern criticism and scholarship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth is an excellent resource for specialists and those writing about the poet, including advanced graduate students. * Lisa Ann Robertson (University of South Dakota), European Romantic Review *
provides rich explorations of Wordsworth's oeuvre, together with well-informed discussions of his inheritance, legacy, and reception. * Pamela Clemit, The Times Literary Supplement *
A long and overwhelmingly wondrous experience that touched me as very few works of secondary literature ever have. * Leslie Brisman, Review 19 *
