Although he will forever be linked with daffodils, William Wordsworth not only wrote about flowers but also designed and worked in his gardens. Mining Wordsworth's poetry and the journals of his sister, Dorothy, this lavish book is both a literary study and an intimate look at the family's attachment to their Lake District gardens at Grasmere and Rydal. The dozens of gorgeous color images include rare botanical prints, illustrations from early editions of Wordsworth, and photographs of hitherto unpublished manuscripts and artworks. "[This book] is so attractive in its design, so generous in its illustrations…. A very carefully conceived, researched and considered book."—Times Literary Supplement (London)
