Carcanet, 2003 - Poetry - 311 pages
A unique opportunity to examine the apprenticeship of a great writer, this selection of poems composed between 1785 and 1790 reveals a precocious and remarkably accomplished early talent and shows that even in his earliest work, Wordsworth was already preoccupied with the themes that would later be explored fully in The Prelude.
