    It is a nice idea to have part of Dorothy's journal and some of William's work that she refers to side by side but I think you'd be better reading a more complete edition with notes and then sourcing William's poetry separately. I do love William's poem in memory of their brother John. I'd not read that one before and of course Dorothy's journals give an incredible insight into life in a different time.

    Mi aspettavo un po' di più dalla sorella di Wordsworth, tanto più che ospitava Coleridge ogni 3X2 ;) Elenco un po' noioso di giornate passate in un cottage nella meravigiosa brughiera inglese all'inizio del 1800, con qualche poesia di Wordsworth qua e là, che però non basta a farne un'opera degna di nota.

    I was surprized to like this book. It is the diary of Dorothy Wordswoth, William Wordsworth's sister. While I thought it would only be about her, she actually give a peak of William W.'s life. She also talks about his poems and other famous poet Coleridge.
