In this modest volume the author reflects on the Sequence of Sonnets concerning the River Duddon which William Wordsworth published in April 1820. In the same volume Wordsworth included his poem "Vaudracour and Julia" and his prose travel guide "A Topographical Description of the Country of the Lakes". Although William Wordsworth had now reached his 50th year, this publication was his first real commercial success as a poet. The 'Duddon' Sonnets are somewhat neglected today and his modern popularity rests largely with the "Lyrical Ballads" - partly a collaboration with Coleridge - and his autobiographical poem "The Prelude". The sequence provides an enchanting description of the River and its environs as it falls from its source among the Central Fells of Cumbria to the Irish Sea, as well as providing a master-class in the art of the Sonneteer.
