Dorothy Wordsworth Wonders of the Everyday


This book is about Dorothy Wordsworth. About her, girl and woman, who loved and wept, rejoiced and worked, sat in stillness to look, walked in all weathers, talked and listened, She wrote about it all, even in old age and through periods of illness.


For Dorothy, there was a world in words on paper, prose or poetry. Whether through her letters or her private Journal, we can rejoice at what she saw and wrote about, a world familiar that becomes new, a world that we seem to have known forever but can still surprise us.

This book is about Dorothy Wordsworth, the writer who saw wonder in the everyday.

Pamela Woof is editor of The Grasmere and Alfoxden Journals, by Dorothy Wordsworth. She is President of the Wordsworth Trust.
