Wordsworth's Lake District

By Howard M Beck

Art & photography, General non-fiction, Environment & nature | Hardback


William Wordsworth, rising to poet, was born on the 7 April 1770 in Cockermouth, in the English Lake District, to Ann Cookson and John Wordsworth, Attorney of Cockermouth and chief Law Agent to Sir James Lowther, first Earl of Lonsdale. Though William travelled extensively throughout Britain and Europe, it was always to his beloved Lakes — his ‘cherished nook’ to which he returned. He lived the first twenty and the last fifty years of his life here, eventually becoming Poet Laureate and probably the best-loved poet of place ever. The author has done an excellent job in combining stunning photography with the poet’s own verse, a marriage resulting in a delightful book that is a visual smorgasbord and visual perfection.
