    During the early, idyllic stage of their friendship Wordsworth and Coleridge spent long days wandering around in the natural beauty of the English countryside deep in discussion Talking for miles and miles they covered philosophy and the nature and purpose of poetry, then interrupted those thoughts to make note of some particular aspect of their surroundings images of flowers, leaves, light or clouds that they used to turn their philosophical insights into poetry Accompanying them was Dorothy, During the early, idyllic stage of their friendship Wordsworth and Coleridge spent long days wandering around in the natural beauty of the English countryside deep in discussion Talking for miles and miles they covered philosophy and the nature and purpose of poetry, then interrupted those thoughts to make note of some particular aspect of their surroundings images of flowers, leaves, light or clouds that they used to turn their philosophical insights into poetry Accompanying them was Dorothy, Wordsworth s lively, devoted sister who was something of a writer herself The three of them spent days and weeks almost continually in each other s company Wordsworth and his sister moved across the country...

    Full disclosure I pretty much skimmed this book But then, coming in at well over 400 pages, it s clearly written for true W and C fans, a group which doesn t include me I just picked it up on a whim because it was marked down and I have little or no impulse control where books are concerned In the general scheme of things, my level of interest in Coleridge and Wordsworth is doomed to remain at a fairly modest threshold But this is certainly not Adam Sisman s fault this is a decently writ Full disclosure I pretty much skimmed this book But then, coming in at well over 400 pages, it s clearly written for true W and C fans, a group which doesn t include me I just picked it up on a whim because it was marked down and I have little or no impulse control where books are concerned In the general scheme of things, my level of interest in Coleridge and Wordsworth is doomed to remain at a fairly modest threshold But this is certainly not Adam Sisman s fault this is a decen...
