This unique and vivid collection brings to life Dove Cottage and Grasmere through the eyes of twenty of our finest poets. Written from so many brilliantly-imagined angles, it allows the reader to experience the day-to-day as it was and is in ‘the loveliest spot that Man hath ever found’.
William and Dorothy Wordsworth’s own writing has pride of place alongside more recent Dove Cottage poets including Fleur Adcock, Simon Armitage, Gillian Clarke, Carol Ann Duffy, Paul Farley, Tony Harrison, Seamus Heaney, Zaffar Kunial, Kim Moore and Helen Mort.
Edited by Ann and Peter Sansom with a foreword by Michael McGregor, Director of The Wordsworth Trust. Published by The Poetry Business in association with the Wordsworth Trust to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Wordsworth as part of The Wordsworth Trust’s ‘Reimagining Wordsworth’ project.
