Wordsworth's Vagrant Muse: Poetry, Poverty, and Power
Wayne State University Press, 1994 - 237 páginas
William Wordsworth's poems are inhabited by beggars, vagrants, peddlers, and paupers. This book analyzes how a few key poems from Wordsworth's early years constitute a direct engagement with and intervention into the politics of poverty and reform that swept the social, political, and cultural landscape in England during the 1790s.
